Untitled Commission for Mostly Mozart Festival
Kyle Abraham and A.I.M will create a new dance work exploring death and reincarnation through a digital re-imagining of Mozart’s Requiem.
Funding from New Music USA will support the creation of music for a new dance piece commissioned by the Mostly Mozart Festival for 2021. In recent years, I’ve had a fascination with death and mythology of the afterlife. Having experienced death and loss in various ways at this point in my life and career, I’m thinking about this moment as a potential re-birth, taking inspiration from the endless faith-based possibilities of the hereafter. This commission offers me an opportunity to make my most abstracted work to date.
