For more than half a century, Kansas City Ballet has been stunning audiences with traditional and avant-garde work executed by a talented resident company. Devised by Jerome Robbins, the Tony Award-winning choreographer of West Side Story, Moves showcases dance independent from the crutch of musical accompaniment. From sky-high seating in the Lyric Theatre's balcony circle, spectators isolate senses of sight from the bad influence of hearing as dancers gesticulate emotional movements that evoke the passion of a love affair, the bittersweet melancholy of a faded letter, or the pain of a fire-ant attack.
