Herewith a totally utilitarian list of September’s coming events, because there are a LOT. Go Tulsa go!
- Starting September 8, the Living Arts ColLABorate workshop is back! Second Monday of each month, 6:30-8:30. “ColLABorate is a regularly meeting collective of artists from all disciplines who have a desire to learn from each other and create together. Each two-hour evening session, Led By Jessica Davenport and Marianne Evans-Lombe, begins with a workshop led by one of the collective artists who will teach techniques and methods derived from their discipline that can aid in rehearsing and generating performance work. The sessions will also include time for artists to collaborate on new ideas and share ongoing works-in-progress.” This is good, good juju — more information at the link above.
- September 5-7, Tulsa Ballet II presents “On Your Radar,” part of an expanded second company season this year under the direction of former TB principal dancer Alfonso Martin. Work by Bournonville, Ma Cong, and Norbert de la Cruz (with music by Crystal Castles in that last one, hello 2014!).
- Choregus Productions launches an absolutely killer season with an exhibit of rare photos of Martha Graham at the Hardesty Arts Center, in preparation for that company’s first-ever visit to Tulsa in two weeks. Keep a close eye on Choregus this year for the absolute best in contemporary dance from across the country — the stuff you really really want to know about.
- Classes! Portico Dans Theatre offers a wide range of classes, from aerial to hip-hop. Their website has all the information plus locations and age levels. Tulsa Modern Movement invites intermediate/advanced dancers to their weekly free open company class on Wednesday evenings. (Anyone else offering an open modern or ballet or contemporary or African or hybrid class? Shoot me a message and I’ll add you to the list!)
- Tribal Tantra / Shedding Skins / movement meditation YES. September 19-21, more info here.
See you out there, movers!
