A.I.M by Kyle Abraham is a Black-led contemporary dance company whose work is informed by and made in conjunction with artists across a range of disciplines. It entwines a sensual and provocative vocabulary with a strong emphasis on music, text, video, and visual art. The company’s program includes Big Rings, an A.I.M–commissioned dynamic, team-based group work choreographed by company member Keerati Jinakunwiphat. Nina Simone Suite (working title) is a new ADF–commissioned ensemble work composed of a series of solos and duets set to some of Simone’s most intimate songs. The Pass (working title) is a new, whisperingly playful work created as an in-conversation duet inspired by Merce Cunningham's 1972 ensemble work Landrover and commissioned by the Baryshnikov Arts Center in partnership with the Merce Cunningham Trust. Drive is a high-energy, propulsive work set to thumping club beats that was created in 2017 for eight dancers.
