Making its Orpheum debut, internationally acclaimed Fist and Heel Performance Group presents Moses(es), a stunning exploration into our relationship with leadership and the effects of migration on beliefs and customs. Grounded in Zora Neale Hurston’s novel and Reggie Wilson’s travels to Israel, Egypt, Turkey and Mali, the work looks at diasporic movement out of Africa. The energetic fusion of modern and African dance is perfectly married to music by Louis Armstrong, The Klezmatics, Ngqoko Women's Ensemble, MaZarhar, Bi Kidude, Southern Sons, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and featuring songs including "Wade In the Water" and "Eli, Eli” sung live by the performers. The show reflects on how we lead and why we follow in a beautiful, enthralling way. Appropriate for all ages.
