John W. Holloway Endowment in Dance and Theatre Guest Artist

Guest Artist Robert Moses
Founded in 1995, San Francisco based Robert Moses' Kin is considered by many to be one of the most prolific and exciting new contemporary dance companies to emerge nationally in the past decade. The company's mission is to produce work which speaks to what is specific and unique in human nature. Robert Moses' Kin uses movement as the medium through which race, class, culture and gender are used to voice the existence of our greater potential and unfulfilled possibilities.

Robert Moses' diverse eleven-member company is known for its eclectic movement vocabulary, demanding choreography, ferocious dancing, and provocative themes. Moses' focus on the expressiveness of the human body and his desire to speak with the voices of his African American heritage have produced works with regional, national and international recognition.  In 2015 he created a work on Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre.

An ambitious and diverse company, Robert Moses' Kin has received tremendous national media coverage in such publications as The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, Dance Magazine, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco Examiner, The Village Voice, Denver Post, Rocky Mountain News, as well as on radio, television and the Internet.
