The Sister Moses Project was conceived in 1998 when Renee Davis relocated to Austin, Texas with her husband and children from Phoenix, Arizona. After 14 years of working with Desert Dance Theatre as dancer, teacher, rehearsal director, choreographer, costumer and later as one of the company’s three Artistic Directors, Renee wanted to share the exciting work they had collaboratively created, most notably their multidisciplinary dance/drama “Sister Moses: The Story of Harriet Tubman.”
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
