Pavement

ALL PERFORMANCES OF PAVEMENT ON NOVEMBER 2-3 WILL PROCEED AS PLANNED.

PDF of MTA service starting Thursday, November 1

A WaterWorks World Premiere

Kyle Abraham/Abraham.In.Motion‘s newest work, Pavement, draws its inspiration from John Singleton’s 1991 film Boyz n the Hood and W.E.B Du Bois’ classic essay, The Souls of Black Folk. Layered with an operatic score comprised mostly by Handel’s Carestini (The Story of a Castrato) and the gun-laden sounds of an urban landscape, Pavement, examines the gains and losses in the conflicted chronology of two Pittsburgh’s historically black neighborhoods.

Collaborators and Performers
Kyle Abraham, Matthew Baker, Charlotte Brathwaite, Rena Butler, Chalvar Monteiro, Jeremy Neal, Dan Scully, Maleek Washington, Alexandra Wells, Eric Williams, Sam Crawford and Maritza Mosquera

Pavement is approximately 70 minutes without intermission.
