One of the hottest young choreographers in the United States, Kyle Abraham often grounds his works in his life history. In The Radio Show we experience two seminal events—the abrupt closing of a favorite hometown radio station and the slow breakdown of communication as a family member descends into Alzheimer’s and Aphasia. Created in collaboration with the dancers of his Abraham.in.Motion company,  the work offers a stunning and personal memory of what once was and what is now lost.
