Miller Outdoor Theatre presents: Jeremy McQueen’s Black Iris Project

Aug 16 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm Miller Outdoor Theatre, 6000 Hermann Park Drive Houston, TX 77030 United States

Founded in 2016 by award-winning choreographer Jeremy McQueen, The Black Iris Project is a ballet collaborative and education vehicle which creates new, relevant classical & contemporary ballet works that celebrate diversity and Black history.

For their Texas debut Jeremy McQueen’s Black Iris Project will be performing a collection of their most dynamic works including the world premiere of The Storm, a new ballet inspired by the Middle Passage, Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Harvey. Also on the program will be Black Iris, the collective’s signature work, inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s painting Black Iris III, and A Mother’s Rite, a solo work set to Stravinsky’s iconic The Rite of Spring.
