Omaha Under the Radar is an annual experimental performance festival in the Midwest, featuring four days of performances, multiple venues, and inspiring performers from around the country. The festival emerged out of a desire to recognize and elevate the adventurous and innovative performers living and working in the Midwest, and to connect this community to other performance communities throughout the United States. By encouraging conversation about performance practice and collaboration, Omaha Under the Radar allows a platform for innovation for the next generation of artists and audiences. Check back for updates and keep experimenting!

Omaha Under the Radar is presented with institutional support from Analog Arts and Commonwealth Studios.
