About the Performance
Milton is a biographical work in movement based on Homewood-bred attorney Milton Raiford. Defending what society considers to be some of the most dangerous and fruitless individuals in society, his bold, fast talking character has made him one of the most controversial and confrontational lawyers in Pittsburgh. Choreographer Kaylin Horgan met Raiford in 2011, and he quickly became one of the most influential people in her life. Set to an original score by Treble NLS and Brittney Chantele, the evening-length work focuses on episodes from Raiford’s life that fueled his dedication to unconditional love.
