Come and witness Robert Moses’ KIN perform for FREE on Saturday, December 3rd! The professional dancers of RMK will perform a world premiere for the company’s intergenerational educational program, Bootstraps: Lyric Legacies, and the general public. This new piece was created and inspired by the work the company has done with elementary schoolers, middle schoolers, high schoolers, and elders throughout the past year. Bootstraps: Lyric Legacies educational workshops facilitate exploration and creativity among students of all levels to help them foster a connection to their authentic selves and their community.
Throughout 2022, the professional teaching artists of Bootstraps: Lyric Legacies led workshops in multiple disciplines, including movement, music, and storytelling/creative writing. Teaching artist teams of 2-3 worked with approximately 145 students of all ability levels, predominantly BIPOC elders, high schoolers, middle schoolers, and elementary school students in underserved communities. The RMK dance artists also visited in person and studied video documentation of these workshops to create movements inspired by the stories of students. At the end of every session, RMK performs the work for students and their communities.
2022 participating students represent Don Fisher Boys & Girls Club, Balboa High School, Carver Elementary, San Francisco Community School, Visitacion Valley Middle School, and elders (44 years old and up) at Booker T. Washington Community Service Center. You won’t want to miss this incredible performance influenced by the stories of these communities!
