Kyle Abraham plumbs personal history, loss in ‘The Radio Show’
In September 2009, Pittsburgh’s only urban-format radio stations went silent. For dancer-choreographer Kyle Abraham, their closing was a palpable loss. Not only had the stations laid down the soundtrack for his Pittsburgh childhood, but they also represented the voice of a community. In response, Abraham did what he does best: He made a dance, the evening-length “The Radio Show,” which World Music/CRASHarts presents at the Institute of Contemporary Art Friday and Saturday.
