Humanity: the ART of being human. Experience the imbalance and imperfections of our world as they impact Humanity and each soul. This three-woman ballet is an original work set to the emotionally- charged and masterfully played Rite of Spring, by Igor Stravinsky. Dickran Atamian, a world-renowned classical pianist, is hailed to have presented the best arrangement to date of this powerful work. Atamian’s daughter will be the principal performer of RITE, making this work a must-see. Allenato, the all-youth performing arts company of Oklahoma Performing Arts, will present four complete works in one evening, April 4th, 2020: RITE, Paulie: the Performer, Trial by Jury and For ART. Oklahoma Performing Arts is a place where every individual is given the opportunity to develop and empower his or her character through classical arts training and community service programs and presentations. Students who study art are 4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement and 3 times more likely to be awarded for school attendance. This is more than just a Dance program. OPA provides the platform for students to mentor each other, build leadership skills and learn how to thrive in real life challenges. 98% of our students who complete the full program go on to college and 98% of those attending college graduate. One student shared, “giving a speech for my student council elections was easy breezy because I have had the opportunity to speak in front of large groups during my time at OPA. I was calm and cool, unlike many of my friends!” For tickets visit: https://www.tulsapac.com/events/2020/rite The cost is $10.00 per ticket.

WORKSHOP: Wright and ‘The Women:’ From his mother, Anna’s insistence she was birthing a great architect, to his early marriage to Kitty, to the scandal with ‘Mamah’ and her tragic murder, and to a final partnership with Olga, women strongly molded the man, Frank Lloyd Wright. We investigate the ups and downs from scandal to tragedy to peaceful co-existence that influenced his ‘organic architecture’ from encounters with the ‘other-half’ of humanity as documented in novels and histories written about the “Women.”

WORKSHOP: The Sykes-Picot Agreement and Today's Middle East Conflict - In 1916, diplomats from France and England made a secret agreement to divide up the Middle East. Promises had been made to the Arab people that they would be allowed to determine their homelands. But this controversial agreement was put into place instead, creating the countries of Iraq, Jordan, Palestine, Syria and Lebanon. This is one of the causes of strife with the Middle East today. This workshop will explore this agreement and its ramifications today.

WORKSHOP: Wagon Train to the Stars: how a space cowboy show Star Trek transformed American popular entertainment: We will explore the fight to get Star Trek made, its tepid reception, and then its transformation into a cancelled show that would “live long and prosper”, as a true cultural phenomenon that launched scores of imitations and transformed America's television and film industries, and even its role more generally in America culture.
