Our Creations in Studio K program is known for commissioning incredible new works from the most in-demand choreographers in the world. This year’s lineup includes the inimitable Ma Cong, and impressive newcomer Garrett Smith. As Resident Choreographer, Mr. Cong creates works that become instant favorites here in Tulsa, on Broadway, and around the globe. Mr. Smith, already a decorated choreographer, is recognized for the “eclectic vocabulary” of his contemporary works (Dance Spirit Magazine), and has created works for Houston Ballet, Mariinsky Ballet, and others. Back by popular demand, we are including an audience favorite to finish out the Creations program. This year’s favorite should be a familiar name to our longtime supporters: we are excited for the return of Val Caniparoli’s Prawn Watching!
