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.
