Beginning in March, Oklahoma Contemporary will present three major performances created and performed by women. With three unique shows, the Women in Performance series highlights the incredible creative contributions made by women in the performing arts.
“The Women in Performance series furthers Oklahoma Contemporary’s mission to create an inclusive nexus for artistic expression and exchange,” says Artistic Director Jeremiah Matthew Davis. “With two performances that have toured the globe and a breathtakingly original show from an Oklahoma-based collective, this series builds upon our drive to showcase cutting-edge contemporary art from around the world while supporting exciting new work by Oklahoma artists.”
The series kicks off March 2 and 3 with The Other Mozart, the true, forgotten story of Nannerl Mozart, sister of Amadeus. Nannerl — a prodigy, keyboard virtuoso and composer — performed, with equal acclaim, throughout Europe with her brother, but her work and her story were lost to history.
