Sydnie L. Mosley Dances
Sydnie L. Mosley Dances is a New York City-based contemporary dance company presenting works that seek to actively engage the audience’s physical and emotional senses with dance performance in addition to involving audiences in the artistic process. Choreographer Sydnie L. Mosley is an emerging voice in dance who often produces work that reflects real life experiences exploring, but not limited to, interests in black cultures and the experiences of women. The movement vocabulary reflects various styles of modern, ballet, and African dance, while dancers frequently use their voice with spoken text and audible breath. Choreographed works aim to move people through dance making them feel human with works that provoke a visceral reaction to the physicality on stage, or incite curiosity and conversation.
Sydnie L. Mosley Dances has presented work at The Chen Dance Center newsteps program for emerging artists; the FIGMENT Festival on Governor’s Island; RoofTopDance, a new stage for emerging artists in Bushwick, Brooklyn; the Artists’ Salon at the Roger Smith Hotel; as a part of the New York Foundation for the Arts Boot Camp Arts Festival at Surreal Estate; and at The Schermerhorn Theater. The company situates itself amongst the Harlem arts community by creating and presenting dance uptown; partnering with other Harlem artists and businesses; and focusing community-based work within Harlem.
