Robert Moses

Modern

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. 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. Moses and his company have been honored with many prestigious grants and awards, among these a 2003 Isadora Duncan Dance Award ("Izzie") for Best Choreography, the Bonnie Bird North American Choreography Award, a San Francisco Bay Guardian "Goldie" and the SF Weekly "Black Box" Award. He has created commissioned works for Oakland Ballet, Cincinnati Ballet, Lawrence Pech Dance Company, Robert Henry Johnson Dance Company, Savage Jazz Dance Company, England's Transitions Dance Company of the Laban Centre, Dance Exchange in London and Goucher College in Baltimore, MD. His work has been performed nationally and internationally, including India, England, Italy and Ireland.
