Moving Arts Cincinnati

Connecting the Queen City | July 27-28, 2018

A premiere opportunity to see contemporary dance by both world renowned and up and coming choreographers, while being engulfed in visual art displays, and musical performances.

Our vision is to extend the dance season, keeping it alive in the city of Cincinnati during the summer months when performances are limited. Moving Arts is an opportunity for renowned and up and coming choreographers to showcase their work and for dancers to explore the arts, collaborate with other regional company dancers, and perform in new cities, all while maintaining a high physical condition. We also envision blending the world of arts, creating an experience like no other. Imagine having the opportunity to see visually intriguing choreography, hear the unconventional sound of an electric violin, eat artfully displayed food, and see a painting being created onsite, all in one place. Along with our performances we will provide the opportunity for our artists to assist in educational outreach to Cincinnati schools. This includes, but is not limited to: master classes, lecturing, and mentoring. This is our vision and we hope to create an inspiring environment for our community, audience, and artists.

It is our mission to provide the audience with the opportunity to explore the relationship between dance and other arts by presenting an experience that is unique and progressive.

“Minus 16 not only delights in its own wackiness, but also celebrates the joy of dancing.”

-San Francisco Chronicle

“Naharin has combined pure movement and theater in pieces charged with tension and drama that nonetheless, he claims, go beyond political metaphor or any particular meaning; Naharin is instead ‘‘turned on by the act of composition,’’ by textures, colors, rhythms.”

Anna Della Subin, The New York Times
