The Making of: Breakin’ Bricks

Tulsa Ballet Breakin' Bricks

In collaboration with the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission, choreographer Jennifer Archibald brings you a singular multimedia experience combining dance and documentary to explore the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. Originally conceived as an historical timeline, through intensive research that included intimate conversation with descendants of survivors, this project has evolved both in structure and in meaning. This is more than a ballet – it is a testimony, a love letter to the legacy, resilience of the people and their city.
