CONTEMPORARY DANCE COMPANY
REGGIE WILSON/FIST & HEEL PERFORMANCE GROUP
PRESENTS MOSES(ES) AT JACOB'S PILLOW, JULY 9-13
June 18, 2014 -- (Becket, Mass) With an array of ideas and images at its source, Reggie Wilson's Moses(es) takes audiences on a captivating journey in six performances at Jacob's Pillow, July 9-13. Wilson's precise, energetic fusion of modern and African dance is remarkable; Brian Seibert of The New York Times comments, "The dance vocabulary is rich: wide squats, jumps that spin and kick, Egyptian poses, arms rippling like bulrushes, heavy steps." The choreography is married to a diverse score including music by Louis Armstrong, The Klezmatics, Amahlokohloko, Ngqoko Women's Ensemble, MaZarher, Aly-Us, Tiger, Bi Kidude, Southern Sons, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and traditional African-American spirituals "Wade In the Water" and "Eli, Eli (Somebody Call Eli)" sung live by the artists of Fist & Heel Performance Group.
