New class of MacArthur 'geniuses'
Kyle Abraham, 36, New York.
As founder and artistic director of Kyle Abraham/Abram.in.Motion, choreographer-dancer Abraham creates works that explore social issues, expressing them via hip-hop, contemporary and modern dance vocabularies. Abraham's "Pavement" (2012), explores the implications of urban violence; "The Radio Show" (2010) reflects on the demise of a Pittsburgh radio station and its impact on its listeners.
