Movement that speaks, even in silence

Audiences rarely leave an A.I.M performance unchanged or uncharged. Drawing from a wide range of contemporary dance styles, and often working in collaboration with his dancers, choreographer, director, and MacArthur Fellow Kyle Abraham crafts a rich repertoire that’s at once provocative and introspective. Two of the company’s newest works, Drive—grounded in hip-hop with a score by Theo Parrish and Mobb Deep—and a vulnerable duet from Dearest Home, punctuate A.I.M’s exciting Festival return (the company brought audience members to their feet in 2012 after performances of The Radio Show), along with Abraham’s The Quiet Dance and postmodern choreographer Doug Varone’s Strict Love.
