Get to ODC early for a good seat. Patron tix (only slightly more $) give you early seating. Well worth it!

Quotes & Highlights

Read an interview with Robert Moses about this new series.
Visit the company’s website.
“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.

This event is appropriate for children ages 12 or older.

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.
