The Black Iris Project at the Miller Outdoor Theater in Houston, TX
August 16, 2019

For our Texas debut, Jeremy McQueen’s Black Iris Project will be performing a collection of our 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.

Houston’s Miller Outdoor Theatre in Hermann Park is unique in the United States, offering an eight-month season of professional entertainment that is artistically excellent, culturally diverse and always FREE of charge to the public. This is the largest “always free” program of its kind in the country.

This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30 AM-1:00 PM. If tickets remain at 1:00 PM, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill. The show goes on rain or shine.
