Smuin Ballet breaks the boundaries of traditional dance with this evening of vibrant, innovative works from some of the Bay Area's most exciting choreographers. Choreographer Garrett Ammon unleashes his own take on Tchaikovsky's iconic score in Serenade for Strings, using movement to reflect the composition's intensity and precision. In Objects of Curiosity, Smuin's choregrapher-in-residence Amy Seiwert explores the tensions between desire and restraint, pairing them with a delicate score by Philip Glass and Foday Musa Suso that mirrors her study on stage. The evening concludes with Frankie and Johnny, Michael Smuin's passionate tribute to the legendary Gene Kelly, danced to a soundtrack of some of the biggest names in Latin and mambo music. Learn More

First half was a full 5 stars! I was on the edge of my seat. The choreography was stunning and fresh. Very immediate. Very now. The second half started out fresh and got slightly stale as it progressed. Three stars for the second half.
Robert Moses’ Kin (RMK) today announces the company’s 18th annual home season to feature the world premiere of NEVABAWARLDAPECE, a major collaborative project among Artistic Director Robert Moses, Obie and BESSIE award-winning writer and performer Carl Hancock Rux; Afro-Celtic, Folk-Funk, Hip-Appalachian vocalist Laura Love; MacArthur Fellow, blues musician, and composer Corey Harris; and former Meredith Monk lighting designer, Stanford faculty member, and visual designer Elaine Buckholtz. This power team of collaborators comes together to create NEVABAWARLDAPECE, a full-company work exploring critical moments of change in America’s liberation movements, insurrections, and revolts.
From John Brown to today’s populist Occupy movement, Moses and his collaborators will consider our nation’s efforts toward humanistic transformation in the 19th century to today. Performances of NEVABAWARLDAPECE mark the first time all of these artist collaborators – Robert Moses Kin’, Rux, Harris, and Love — will perform together live.
