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.

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.
