Kyle Abraham/Abraham.In.Motion‘s newest work, Pavement, draws its inspiration from John Singleton’s 1991 film Boyz n the Hood and W.E.B Du Bois’ classic essay, The Souls of Black Folk. Layered with an operatic score comprised mostly by Handel’s Carestini (The Story of a Castrato) and the gun-laden sounds of an urban landscape, Pavement, examines the gains and losses in the conflicted chronology of two Pittsburgh’s historically black neighborhoods.
