MDC Live Arts Presents “Live! The Realest MC”

By Zarina Gutierrez

Miami Dade College’s Live Arts program will be feature choreographer Kyle Abraham and his dance company’s latest work “Live! The Realest MC” at the Colony Theatre, 1040 Lincoln Road, at 8 p.m. from Feb. 1 to 2.

The performance will showcase Abraham’s dance company, Abraham.In.Motion., and perform pieces relating to Abraham’s inquiries on gender roles in the African American community. His pieces are inspired by story-book characters such as Pinocchio and his own work “Inventing Pookie Jenkins,” in which characters long for acceptance.

“I prayed that I could go unnoticed, hoping that if I get my voice to sound like the other male students around me, I wouldn’t be found out,” Abraham said.

General admission tickets are $25 and $10 for MDC students with a valid MDC ID.
