|“This is the second time my work has been presented at The Dance Center. I’ve also taught and set pieces on students and The Dance Center was instrumental in supporting the early research and development of "Moses(es)." My relationship with The Dance Center feels deep and long; I trust that it will be there into the future.”|

Reggie Wilson’s Moses(es), an evening-length piece co-commissioned by The Dance Center, explores our relationship to leadership and the effects of migration on beliefs and customs. Grounded in Zora Neale Hurston’s novel Moses, Man of the Mountains, and arising out of Wilson’s exploratory travels to Israel, Egypt, Turkey and Mali, the work looks at diasporic movement out of Africa and into the rest of the world through the lens of Moses stories in their various cross-cultural and cross-faith interpretations.
