“I can think as cerebrally as possible about my choreography, but I don’t expect audience members to notice all of that,” Hartel said. “I expect them to be viscerally moved by the work — they could love it, they could hate it, it could make them cry or laugh but ultimately they leave with an experience that they remember positively so that next time there’s a performance, they want to come back.”
Performances are scheduled 8 p.m. April 11-13 and 3 p.m. April 14, in the Rupel J. Jones Theatre, 563 Elm St.
Tickets prices are $22 for adults and $18 for senior adults, OU faculty, and staff and military, and $14 for students. Tickets may be purchased by calling 405-325-4101, or in person at the OU Fine Arts Box Office, 500 W. Boyd St., in the Catlett Music Center.
