Choregus Productions Begins a New Season of Cutting-Edge Dance and Memorable Music Here in Tulsa
On this installment of StudioTulsa, we speak with Ken Tracy, the founder of (and programming director for) the Tulsa-based nonprofit arts organization known as Choregus Productions. Choregus will kick off its 2012/2013 season with performances on Saturday and Sunday (the 22nd and 23rd) by Complexions Contemporary Ballet; the pair of dancers/choreographers who created Complexions have been hailed by The New York Times as "two of the greatest vituosos ever to emerge from Ailey land." (You can get a complete schedule for the new Choregus season, as well as detailed information on tickets, curtain times, and other matters, at this link. Or you can call 918-688-6112.) Choregus has only been around for a few years now, but it's already established itself as one of our community's outstanding presenters of arts/dance/music events. And as Tracy tells us on today's show, the mission for this organization is the same as it's always been: To present a range of top-quality performances that just otherwise wouldn't be staged here in T-Town.
