Approximately 65 minutes with no intermission.

Dance-maker Kyle Abraham is seriously charismatic and hailed as “one of the brightest creative talents to emerge in New York City” in the last four years. Equal parts power and grace, he commands the stage, connecting directly with the audience. Winner of a Bessie Award, The Radio Show delves into the loss of voice (both of his father and a defunct urban radio station) with authenticity, heart and humour. The seven dancers are riveting: sizzling lines of energy, sinuous yet funky, elegantly articulated. The movement is as loose as street dance, but as precise as ballet. With a classic soul/hip-hop score and elastic, electric dance, The Radio Show is an emotional ride that is operating on all frequencies!

“... the cast of seven, Mr. Abraham included, was as fierce as the choreography ... balancing fluidity with finely calibrated precision. It’s smart and self-aware, and luscious too: the complete package.”

Claudia La Rocco, The New York Times
