Book Robert Moses’ Kin
at your University or School Today!

Robert Moses is available to present an Artist Talk or Lecture-Demonstration at your university or school. Drawing from his 25+ years of experience leading his nationally-recognized company Robert Moses’ Kin, Robert will share how dance remains resilient and responds to ever-evolving environments and challenges. 

 

Artist Talks with Robert can include screenings and discussions of recent and archival work from the RMK repertory. Much of the work focuses on Black lives, social justice, and the transformative power of art in our lives (preview repertory HERE). By hearing Robert speak in-depth about the process of putting a piece together and preparing to present it, students will gain crucial insight into how professional companies and artists work. 

 

This lecture can be presented entirely virtually or in-person and can be accompanied by a master class/workshop or live demonstration.
