Margaret Jenkins Dance Company – Trace Figures – San Francisco

★★★★✰   Friday the 13th was auspicious for San Francisco dance: Margaret Jenkins Dance Company premiered Trace Figures, a site-specific performance immersion that could be done by no other company or permutation of artists.

Robert Moses’ Kin – Bootstrap Tales (premiere), Speaking Ill of the Dead, Trapdoors/Trickbags/Painted Corners, Lucifer’s Prance – San Francisco

★★★★✰   The choreography for Bootstrap Tales abides in a place where possibility, gumption and empowerment meet. The atmosphere of moving forward is palpable.

Robert Moses’ KIN Dance Company – ODC and Novellus Theater bills – San Francisco

In a world where choreographers with their own eponymous companies prevail, I am happy to see that Moses sees the value of feeding his dancers a diverse diet of artistic experiences, definitely a situation where everyone wins, audience included.
