The Bay Area's Robert Moses' Kin Brings Multimedia Dance Performance To The Luckman
Coming down to our neck of the woods from the Bay Area, the dance company Robert Moses’ Kin will fill The Luckman stage for one formidable performance this Saturday evening. Presenting critically-acclaimed work from their repertory, the production includes accompaniment by the San Francisco Boys Chorus, under the direction of Ian Robertson, and a host of other contributing art-makers.Along with this choral treat, Fable and Faith folds text by playwright/actress Anne Galjour, visual and lighting design by Elaine Buckholtz and Ian Winters and instrumental compositions by Paul Carbonara into what promotional materials describe as an exploration of “imagination, creativity, identity and the current cultural climate through the metaphor of children's fables.”
In addition, the ten elegant dancers will present their multimedia undoing of traditional family structures in The Cinderella Principle. This collaborative project is based on in-depth interviews with families that are culturally, racially or genealogically diverse, adoptive or otherwise non-traditional or non-homogenous and blends some of the aforementioned artists with projections by Bill Morrison, an original score by Todd Reynolds and Kid Beyond and a set design by Erik Flatmo.
The 17-year-old company has been called "masterful” by the San Francisco Chronicle, "intoxicating” by the Chicago Tribune and has earned lots of national awards, including four Isadora Duncan Awards (IZZIES)—aka Bay Area Dance Oscars.
