TRENDING: Choreographing Afrofuturism


Consider Mozart’s Requiem in D Minor, unfinished by the composer at the time of his death in 1791, as a deliberate incomplete sentence, a poetic invitation open to reinterpretation over the ensuing 231 years. Its latest evolution takes shape in the hands of choreographer Kyle Abraham, whose transformative evening-length work, Requiem: Fire in the Air of the Earth, premiered in New York in August 2022. Co-commissioned by Lincoln Center and featuring ten dancers from his company, A.I.M, the new piece repositions the classical Requiem to explore rebirth, ritual, and the afterlife. The result is a stunning and abstracted rewiring of mythology, folklore, and Afrofuturism. For more, visit:
