Called "the most forward-looking American ballet company on the continent" (Contra Costa Times), San Francisco Ballet rarely disappoints in its selection and performance of innovative, genre-defining works. For this exciting triple bill, SF Ballet presents the world premiere of Hummingbird by Liam Scarlett, a contemporary ballet wunderkind who, at only 26, was recently appointed artist-in-residence at The Royal Ballet. The program also includes the return of Helgi Tomasson's masterful The Fifth Season and Serge Lifar's elegant Suite en Blanc, a brilliant showcase of French neoclassicism featuring "a parade of stunning individual and Hollywood-big corps performances" (San Jose Mercury News).

Some great work, but some boring work that went on and on. The Alayo piece that I really went to see was completely dropped from the program last week, and they neglected to note it on their website, on ODC's website, or on Goldstar's website. Wouldn't have gone had I known.

“Robert Moses’ choreography not only moves you, it makes you want to move…. His is sophisticated dance, smart work for smart people.” —San Francisco Chronicle
" … [W]hy put Molissa Fenley, Ramon Ramos Alayo, and Sidra Bell … together? Like Moses, they speak with powerful 21st century voices from within the African Diaspora. Fenley spent formative years in Nigeria, Alayo in Cuba, and Bell, the youngest of the three, started her company as a community project in Harlem. Yet these artists couldn’t be more different from each other, and that’s the point." —SF Bay Guardian
In June 2012 Robert Moses’ Kin will launch The BY Series, a new choreographic commissioning project, which this year features works by guest choreographers Molissa Fenley, Sidra Bell and Ramon Ramos Alayo. On the same program, the company will perform the world premiere of Robert Moses’ Scrubbing the Dog, a full company work exploring show historically racist and otherwise offensive cultural iconography has become “scrubbed” of its original meanings over the course of time. For this work Moses once again is collaborating with lighting designer Elaine Buckholtz and composer/musician Paul Carbonara, currently with Mary McBride and formerly of the iconic 80’s rock band, Blondie.
