Image <BR>Robert Moses<P><BR>Octavia Roca writes of Robert Moses' Kin's performance of a new work, "Lone":<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>"Lone," which opened Thursday night at the ODC Theater, is a suite of solos, duets and ensembles set to a clever parade of pop music, percussion and silence. Wanda Kraikit's set -- lots of crumpled newspapers on one side, a pile of books upstage -- left enough room for dancers to do their thing. There was variety in the casting, with Tristan Ching's earthy sensuality a foil to Brian Grannan's amusing aloofness and Jose M. Comoda's closely packed physicality. Moses himself, a powerful performer, was most persuasive among the lone figures.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR><B><A HREF="http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2000/08/12/DD15802.DTL" TARGET=_blank>Read the SF Chronicle article</A></B>.

Meanwhile, Sima Belmar of the SF Bay Guardian thought:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>IT SEEMS FAIRLY obvious that a critic is supposed to respond to what transpires onstage, devoid as much as possible of any preconceived notions or personal biases. That's a laugh, especially when the press releases say one thing, the artist presents another, and the postperformance Q&A reveals yet another.<P>In the case of Robert Moses's show Lone at ODC Theater (Aug. 10), I expected a series of solos danced by Moses himself. When it became clear from the program that the performance would actually feature Moses and members of his company, Kin, I adjusted my expectations but not without disappointment. Few shows are all-around successes, but give Moses a stage all to himself and little can go wrong. He's probably tired of hearing what an extraordinary dancer he is and itching to have his choreography held up to scrutiny. I'm happy to do that. But for the record: he's an extraordinary dancer.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><B><A HREF="http://www.sfbg.com/AandE/34/46/wholly.html" TARGET=_blank>Read the full article</A></B>
