On November 17th, Making Moves and EMS will be joining forces and collaborating for an evening of improvised music and dance.

For both organizations and their respective monthly series, collaboration and creating community are central to the missions of each group. Combining the practices of improvisation to both mediums, we hope to further create and foster interdisciplinary collaboration. This month’s performers include dancers/choreographers Nora Burkitt, Katarina Fitzpatrick, Kyle Mullins, Jeramy Zimmerman and musicians Ben Baker, Seth Andrew Davis, Aaron Osborne, and Alan Voss. We also invite other dancers/choreographers to join us to freely improvise in the space.

Making Moves is a monthly dance performance series located in Kansas City, MO, curated and produced by Kyle Mullins. Making Moves is dedicated to the creation and development of new works by local and regional dance makers and to expose Kansas City audiences to a wider array of contemporary dance making.

Making Moves provides area choreographers, dancers, and audiences the opportunity to share in the process of new and experimental work in both traditional and non-traditional performance venues. Experimentation, risk-taking, collaboration, and multi-disciplinary approaches are encouraged.



Founded in 2021, the EMS (Extemporaneous Music Society) is a free improvisation/contemporary music and arts collective & ensemble based in Kansas City. The mission of the group is to help grow and facilitate an improvised/experimental arts scene in Kansas City through performances, record label, collaborations, workshops, and a concert series. EMS was founded by Seth Andrew Davis and Evan Verploegh, along with Ben Baker and Krista Kopper.

EMS Presents is a monthly improvised/experimental music series curated by Seth Andrew Davis & Evan Verploegh, an extension of the ensemble Extemporaneous Music Society. EMS aims to highlight local improvised/experimental music practitioners as well as national/international artists to bring them to Kansas City and shine a light on the local community and build a local and international improvised music community.
