About Robert

Artistic Director Robert Moses has created a broad repertory of works of varying styles and genres. His work explores topics ranging from oral traditions in African American culture (Word of Mouth), the life, times, and work of author James Baldwin (Biography), and the dark side of contemporary urban culture (Cause), to the nuanced complexities of parentage and identity (The Cinderella Principle), the interception of faith and fables in modern life (Fable & Faith), and the simple joy and expressive power of pure movement (Toward September, Other Gods, The Soft Sweet Smell of Firm Warm Things).

In addition to his work for RMK, Robert has choreographed for San Francisco Opera, Ailey II, Philadanco, Cincinnati Ballet, Eco Arts, Transitions Dance Company of the Laban Center in London, African Cultural Exchange (UK), Bare Bones (UK), Oakland Ballet, Moving People Dance, and Robert Henry Johnson Dance Company, among others. He has choreographed for film, theater and opera, with major productions for the Lorraine Hansberry Theater, New Conservatory Theater, Los Angeles Prime Moves Festival (L.A.C.E.), and Olympic Arts Festival.

A highly regarded master teacher and educator, he has taught throughout the United States, including Bates Dance Festival, Colorado Dance Festival, Goucher College, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, University of Texas, and University of Nevada. Moses has been a returning guest artist at the Northwest Dance Project and a mentor with Choreographers in Mentorship Exchange (CHIME). He conducts movement and performance workshops internationally.
