The BY Series
Launched in the summer of 2012, The BY Series is a performance series and choreographic commissioning project of Robert Moses’ Kin. “The BY Series gives the dancers the opportunity to experience the work of other choreographers and for audiences to see another side of Robert Moses’ Kin,” explains Moses. The inaugural season of The BY Series in 2013 featured the choreography of Molissa Fenley, Sidra Bell and Ramon Ramos Alayo.
Draft is a performance project of Robert Moses’ Kin launched in 2006 and featuring the solo performances of collaborative artists created in brief encounters with choreographer Robert Moses with the intention of extracting essential movement and the unique individuality of each performer. The resultant works are as different as they are celebrations of the communities in which they are performed.
