Connecting the Queen City | June 28-29, 2019
Moving Arts is a captivating summer dance project employing performing artists and presenting their work in residence. Moving Arts pushes the envelope of cutting edge dance in Cincinnati. Each summer we cross pollinate Cincinnati’s artists with other national and international professional dancers. We combine them with choreographers who are on the forefront of dance – creating the summer’s most exciting showcase.
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.

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