"Brief Kingdom" premieres April 24, 25 and 26

An ancient fairy tale launches a 21st century journey into the risks and rewards of vulnerability through raw, rigorous dance and compelling poetic narrative.

The new evening-length work by Tulsa Modern Movement stands on the
shoulders of the great archetypes, as with the Princess and Frog we let go of the isolating fear that we will not get what we need.

Opening night of "Brief Kingdom" is the season Gala on April 24, with performances continuing April 25 and 26.

Come to the Gala!

The opening night Gala continues TuMM's Kicker tradition with a new wrinkle – a full performance of "Brief Kingdom" on the Tulsa Ballet Studio K stage! Tickets are $75 per person, or you can join Principals Circle and receive two tickets with your membership.

Tickets now on sale...

April 24 Gala, 7:30pm, tickets $75
April 25, 8pm, tickets starting at $20
April 26, 3pm, tickets starting at $20
Contact TuMM for student ticket availability.
