This was dance lost in a cacophony of well intended but trite spoken cliches that only served to detract. Dance suffers when production becomes more important than the product produced.

Description

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. 

About the Ticket Supplier: Robert Moses' Kin

Choreographer Robert Moses founded Robert Moses' Kin in 1995 and since then has created numerous works of varying styles and genres for his highly praised dance company. Robert Moses creates dances that speak to our times: His work is a powerful combination of athletic technique, rhythmic complexity, a fusion of different dance styles, and gestural detail. He explores topics ranging from oral history in African American culture to the life and work of author James Baldwin, the isolation found in new love to the dark side of contemporary urban culture, and the simple joyous expressions of pure movement.
