July 6 Omaha Under the Radar
Performances begin at 5:00

The contemporary performance festival Omaha Under the Radar returns to Joslyn for the fourth year, enlivening the galleries and open spaces of the Museum with live music and dance.

The evening begins with Chinook Collaborative Ensemble playing chamber music for oboe and strings inspired by Wikipedia, Galileo, and all who seek truth in complex societies. Following the opening musical performance, tbd Dance Collective will create movement sculptures using innovative improvisation techniques in response to Joslyn's special exhibition Bijoux Parisiens: French Jewelry from the Petit Palais, Paris in the Fountain Court in collaboration with composer and cellist April Faith-Slaker. Elizabeth Baker and Helen Hansen French will present a new work for dance, piano, and electronics that explores fear as a reaction to our changing environment and circumstances. The event will conclude with an ensemble dance choreographed by Vivian Kim which reflects the discrimination faced by Asian-Americans today.
 
The event is free and open to the public. Visitors wishing to view the special exhibition, Bijoux Parisiens must obtain an exhibition ticket at the admissions desk. Tickets are free for members and college students with ID; $5 Thursday evenings for general public adults.

Omaha Under the Radar is an annual experimental performance festival in the Midwest. We celebrate cultural innovators with performances throughout the city of Omaha.

The festival emerged from a desire to recognize and elevate the adventurous and innovative performers and creators living and working in the Midwest, and to connect this community to other performance communities throughout the United States.

Since the first festival, held in 2014, Omaha Under the Radar has presented over 200 artists from more than a dozen cities throughout the United States. We work to represent a multiplicity of genres, ideas, and identities through performances, talks, group discussions and educational opportunities.
