Project Description


About the Work

“The Rub” is an abstract work, but it hints at a constantly shifting drama. We find ourselves in the midst of not just one story but others that overlap and compete, like hearing different versions of the same incident. Since founding Robert Moses’ Kin in 1995 in San Francisco, choreographer Robert Moses has created numerous works of varying styles & genres for his highly praised dance company. His work explores topics ranging from oral traditions in African American culture (Word of Mouth, 2002), the life, times, & work of author James Baldwin (Biography of Baldwin, 2003), & the dark side of contemporary urban culture (Cause, 2004), to the nuanced complexities of parentage & identity (The Cinderella Principle, 2010), & the simple joys of the expressive power of pure movement (Toward September, 2009).
