Aired Tuesday, July 23, 2019

The Tulsa Performing Arts Center will be a hub of contemporary dance this weekend, with two different dance festivals. Choregus Productions presents their annual SummerHeat International Dance Festival, but in conjunction with these internationally renown companies, the local contemporary dance cooperative The Bell House will present its 6th Exchange Choreography Dance Festival featuring 15 local, regional and national contemporary dance choreographers and companies presenting solos, duets, and small dance ensembles. The choreographers from across the South and Midwest join local choreographers in presenting their short works with a talkback with the audience. Three sessions take place Friday, July 26th at 4:30pm and 7:30pm, and Saturday, July 27th at 2pm. 

Our guests are Rachel Bruce Johnson, the festival artistic director, and Alicia Chesser Atkin, festival curator and one of the choreographers.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
