Former Emerging Choreographer (2008), and 2013 MacArthur grant recipient, Kyle Abraham named Dance Magazine’s “Man of the Moment”
In 2008, Abraham created an installation in Montreal for Ballet Divertimento’s wonderful Springboard summer dance session. He became friends with one of Springboard’s founders, Alexandra Wells of New York’s Juilliard School. Since then, Wells has offered her comments on all of Abraham’s creations, including Pavement.
“She really gave honest feedback — what was necessary or needed more work. She can give me performance notes where maybe someone else would be afraid for whatever reason. She really goes there with me and tells me what is and isn’t believable, where I can take more time and where I take too much time.”
