Unboxed

Oklahoma Contemporary Te Ata Theater

In collaboration with Oklahoma Contemporary, Oklahoma City Ballet will present Unboxed as an addition to the 2022/23 Season. Unboxed is a celebration of contemporary dance by three world-renowned choreographers at the top of their field: Rena Butler, Larry Keigwin, and one more to be determined. Each choreographer will present a short work, and visual artist Yatika Fields will collaborate on the project with his vibrant, energetic works of art.

World-premiere intellectual property will be created right here in Oklahoma with some of the brightest and most talented creative minds of our time. Unboxed will fill a need in our region to help pioneer dance on the global stage, creating work that can be presented to our local community AND can be remounted in other public spaces around the country.

Unboxed was created to increase accessibility to new ballet audiences. For the first time ever, Oklahoma City Ballet and Oklahoma Contemporary will make ticket prices “pay what you can,” removing the financial burden from those who want to experience a dance performance. This pricing model is only possible because of our generous sponsors:

Dance/USA and the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation
