World Premiere – Robert Mills

Nearly 25 years ago, Oklahoma City became the center of the world’s attention with the devastating bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.  168 innocent lives were lost in the tragedy.  It remains the deadliest domestic-based terrorist attack in the history of the United States. In this groundbreaking world premiere created in partnership with the Oklahoma City National Memorial Museum, Artistic Director Robert Mills will create a new work that not only serves as a remembrance of those who were lost, but a celebration of a resilient community that has come together to transform itself in the aftermath.
