Abe Abraham's exquisite film Wind and Tree was created especially for the medium of film and inspired by a poem by Pulitzer Prize winning poet Paul Muldoon. The young filmmaker/dancer founded his company, Abanar, for the purpose of expanding perceptions of movement through film.
For Abe, film becomes a partner in the creation of dance.
Featured performers are:
- Megumi Eda (currently with Armitage Gone! Dance)
- Caitlin Mundth (Broadway's La Cage aux Folles)
- Kevin Petite (formerly Ailey II and Tharp's Movin' Out)
- Jacob Warren (Armitage Gone! Dance), and
- Abe Abraham.
