Presented by Oklahoma City Ballet in partnership with Oklahoma Contemporary
Main Building | Te Ata Theater
Unboxed was a celebration of contemporary dance by three world-renowned choreographers at the top of their field: Rena Butler, Larry Keigwin and OKC Ballet's Artistic Director Ryan Jolicoeur-Nye. Each choreographer presented a short work, and visual artist Yatika Starr Fields designed set and costume pieces in collaboration with Rena Butler.
World-premiere intellectual property was created right here in Oklahoma with some of the brightest and most-talented creative minds of our time. Unboxed filled 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. It also increased accessibility to new ballet audiences: Tickets were “pay what you can.”
