Robert Moses’ Kin DRAFT comes to Mission Dance for three performances, April 13, 14 & 15. In a series of collaborations encounters, dancers perform evocative movement that ask compelling questions ever present in today’s polarized American life. How do issues of violence, gun control and “Me Too!” translate into dance? You won't want to miss these choreographic encounters: brilliant contemporary dance meets today's hot button social realities.
DRAFT is a performance project conducted by Robert Moses' Kin launched in 2006. Featuring the solo performances of collaborative artists created with brief encounters with choreographer Robert Moses, the intention of the project is to extract essential movement and the unique individuality of each performer.
This year will present new work in the form of a fundraiser.
