Kyle Abraham and Carrie Schneider began collaborating as recent college graduates in 2003, when they met working as "Artist Educators" at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, developing public programs for adults and teens. In subsequent years, Schneider has participated in several residencies with Abraham's dance company, Abraham.in.Motion, including On the Boards (Seattle) and Jacob's Pillow (Massachusetts), and her videos have been featured in two of Abraham's evening-length performances, including Op. 1 (2010), and Live! The Realest MC (2011). A founding member of the A.I.M. board, Schneider also continues to shoot much of the promotional material for the company.
Abraham and Schneider's most recent collaboration is Dance Response Project (2013–2014), a series of seven short improvised dance videos, featuring Abraham performing solo and, at times, with collaborators. Dance Response Project was inspired, in part, by UK-based musician James Blake's 2013 album Overgrown.
The associated exhibition at Slought featuring the work of Carrie Schneider will include a selection of short films from the Dance Response Project, including "Overgrown" (2013), "Digital Lion" (2013), "I am Sold" (2014), and, available online, "Retrograde" (2013).
