Additional Information

"The Watershed," an all-new evening-length work for nine dancers, is a commanding and provocative cross-cultural exploration of freedom created by Bessie-award winner and 2013 MacArthur Fellow Kyle Abraham.

Featuring Abraham’s signature style of mellifluous fluidity juxtaposed with sharp accents, "The Watershed" follows the universal aspiration toward freedom and simultaneously references emancipation following the Civil War, the political tumult of 1960s, and civil rights challenges of our present day.

The work features arresting scenic design by world-renowned visual artist Glenn Ligon and a score ranging from a contemporary cello suite to the soulful sounds of Otis Redding.
