Beginning Friday, Feb. 22
If you want to know what the experience of the two-weekend New Genre Festival is like, all you need is to hear these titles: Temple Hive, Transient Spaces, Strange Planet. For 20 years, Living Arts of Tulsa has brought pioneering artists to Tulsa presenting work that has perplexed and provoked. This year’s continues the tradition of breaking through traditional forms of art that might have separated dance from music from visuals from theater. The festival opens Friday, Feb. 22, with the art installations Transient Spaces and Temple Hive at Living Arts of Tulsa, 307 E. Brady St., as well as the 60-minute dance theater Strange Planet from the Jordan Fuchs Dance Company at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center, 110 E. Second St. Some call the works “revolutionary,” others are less enthusiastic. But New Genre is nothing less than a gift to Tulsa. The festival continues through March 2 at various venues.
