May 3-6, 2018
Signature Series features three culturally stimulating and thought-provoking works meant to ignite conversation and action. This politically focused program reminds us of the dangers in allowing history to repeat itself, and inspires us to keep moving forward.
Kurt Jooss’s 1932 The Green Table is a powerful anti-war statement that continues to remain provocative and socially relevant today. Rassemblement (which translates to “gathering”) is Nacho Duato’s moving look at the “liberating powers of music and dance” as related to human rights issues. You’ll also be the first in Oklahoma to see Glass Figures, an exciting new work by Resident Choreographer and audience favorite Ma Cong (premiered at The Joyce Theater in NYC in March, 2018).
