Thursday, January 16th at 8pm

Featuring his dynamic hip-hop choreography packed with storytelling and theatrical accents, Erik Saradpon brings his A-game to The Montalbán stage with his debut of FORMALITY LIVE! - a celebration of his climactic works and visions. 
 

Having worked with award-winning artists such as Tessandra Chavez, Tricia Miranda, Liz Imperio, and Brian Friedman, Erik has a unique edge to his hip-hop style that emanates entertainment, athleticism and originality.

Mary Grace McNally
Friday, January 17th at 8pm

Mary Grace McNally, founder and artistic director of MG + Artists and the 2018 Capezio A.C.E. Awards winner, brings her mesmerizing choreography to LA in the world premiere of When it Falls.

 

In this must-see production, the artists examine the way in which we navigate our changing selves, in an ever-shifting world, through movement and an original sound score. 

Having expanded her vast knowledge from working with leading contemporary choreographers such as Medhi Walerski and Jermaine Spivey, it is no surprise that she has presented her work at more than 15 venues in the last four years, most recently at The Joyce Theater in NYC. 

Come experience this inspiring evening created by Mary Grace and her dance collective.

Rudy Abreu & JA Collective
Saturday, January 18th at 8pm


World-class choreographer Rudy Abreu will be taking the stage with his all-male company (Embodiment) and all-female company (Radiance) to premiere a new work at this year’s MOVES.

 

Embodiment X Radiance presents The Overthinker, a story-driven show that will take you through the ups and downs of our generation’s struggle with anxiety and how it can both devalue and enrich our lives in tremendous ways.

 

Audiences will have the opportunity to see the world premiere of The Overthinker along with a special opening performance by JA Collective (co-directed by Jordan Johnson and Aidan Carberry) exclusively at this year’s festival.
