Requiem: Fire in the Air of the Earth
December 4, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$15 – $68
Led by the extraordinary choreographer and MacArthur genius Kyle Abraham, A.I.M and music pioneer Jlin have come together to create a new work through a reimagining of Mozart’s Requiem in d minor.
Abraham and Jlin explore the central theme of one of the most canonical works of white Western classical music, death and the myths of reincarnation, from an explicitly Black perspective.
In his fluid choreographic language, Abraham draws from the repertoire of classical ballet, hip-hop, modern dance, and street dance while Jlin takes Mozart’s classic requiem and turns it into an electronic dance piece, building her sound on a style of house dance and street dance that originated in Chicago in the 1990s.
