Please join me — and Tulsa Modern Movement and Portico Dans Theatre and Living Water and Erin Craven Brown and Kelsey Berry & Dancers from ORU, plus a live saxophonist, installations by artist Erin Turner, poet Deborah Hunter, dance students from Central High School, and many more special collaborators — at the first eMerge Dance Festival this weekend (it’s free!) at the TYPros StreetCReD/Red Fork Revival.

We have all been stretching our imaginations for months now to create innovative, interactive pieces for this non-traditional venue. We sincerely hope everyone who comes out — or who might just stop by on the way to the Crystal City Carnival, or to hear a band, or whatever fun y’all might get up to at the StreetCReD event — will be moved and enlivened by what we have created.

Here’s the eMerge website, and here’s a preview from Urban Tulsa by Jennifer Ratliff. Can’t wait to see you this weekend (rain or shine)!
