Dancer/choreographer Kyle Abraham and his company Abraham.In.Motion headline the 2011-2012 Emory Dance Program season. The season includes a new series showcasing choreography in progress, lectures from some of the nation's leading dance scholars, and concerts from the Emory Dance Program faculty.

As part of a two-week residency in September, Abraham will set a piece on Emory students for the Emory Dance Company Fall Concert (Nov. 17-19). "Out Magazine" has hailed Abraham as "the best and brightest creative talent to emerge in New York City in the age of Obama." Other choreographers for the concert are Atlanta-based artists Celeste Miller, Emory faculty members Gregory Catellier and George Staib, as well as Dance Program Alumnae Blake Beckham and Kathleen Wessel.

During his residency at Emory, Abraham will participate in a new movement series dedicated to uncovering the architecture, process and findings of the choreographic process (Sept. 27). "Dance in Progress"will be an ongoing, informal presentation of works in various stages of creation, featuring the Emory dance faculty and guest artists.

Abraham returns to Emory in February along with his company, Abraham.In.Motion, to perform "The Radio Show," an investigation of communication, identity and personal history (Feb. 23-25). The Radio Show is presented at Emory as part of the Flora Glenn Candler Series.
