Kyle Abraham is a self-styled “rave kid” who has become one of the foremost talents in American contemporary dance. The choreography of this MacArthur Genius award-winner is buoyant and irrepressibly sensual, and proudly wears its multitude of signifiers: queer, black, high modernist, popular.
Originally a 2014 World Stage presentation, The Radio Show brought Abraham into new emotional and narrative territory. It is an elegy to the Motown and hip-hop stations that were the soundtrack of Abraham’s youth in Pittsburgh. When these stations abruptly went off the air in 2009, this soundtrack, and the conversation about community that flourished in the gaps between tracks, stopped.
In the sudden silence, Abraham picked up the pieces – the songs, the words, the static – and made a dance. Revealing rituals of listening and the spaces of silence, The Radio Show is a memorial that moves to the music.
