Artistic Director Robert Moses has created a broad repertory of works of varying styles and genres. His work explores topics ranging from oral traditions in African American culture (Word of Mouth), the life, times, and work of author James Baldwin (Biography), and the dark side of contemporary urban culture (Cause), to the nuanced complexities of parentage and identity (The Cinderella Principle). In addition to his work for RMK, Robert has choreographed for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, San Francisco Opera, Ailey II, Philadanco, Cincinnati Ballet, Eco Arts, Transitions Dance Company of the Laban Center in London, African Cultural Exchange (UK), Bare Bones (UK), Oakland Ballet, Moving People Dance, and Robert Henry Johnson Dance Company, among others. He has choreographed for film, theater and opera, with major productions for the Lorraine Hansberry Theater, New Conservatory Theater, Los Angeles Prime Moves Festival (L.A.C.E.), and Olympic Arts Festival. Since founding Robert Moses’ Kin in 1995 in San Francisco, choreographer Robert Moses has collaborated with prominent dancers, musicians, composers, sculptors, authors, poets, and designers to realize the concept of dance as a unifying form of art, an art form that speaks broadly from a specifi c place. While touring nationally and creating over 90 original works, Robert Moses’ Kin has earned a host of awards, including four Isadora Duncan Awards (IZZIES), the Bonnie Bird North American Choreography Award, a Bay Guardian Outstanding Local Discovery Award in Dance (Goldie) and a SF Weekly Black Box Award for Choreography.
