Dearest Home

Kyle Abraham

Dearest Home is an interactive dance work conducted in a multi-year format focused on Love, Longing and Loss. Comprised primarily of solos and duets generated in conversation and collaboration with a variety of age groups and self-identified subcultures, Home interweaves movement, in its most vulnerable or intimate state with my interest in cross-cultural conversation and community action to create an open dialogue on how different demographics view and converse on topics rooted in love and the absence of love. Thus creating a genuine departure from the violence and injustices prevalent in my work over the past five years.

In addition, these solos and duets may be broken up and performed as individual works for installation settings. 

This work will be documented in the form of a documentary film and a book rich with imagery and writings to accompany the research and presentations of Dearest Home including its premiere at YBCA in May 2017.
