For the second year in a row, the Oklahoma Center for the Humanities is excited to partner with Tulsa Symphony Orchestra and Philbrook to co-host a Second Saturday at the museum organized around our theme. This year we are working on the topic of food, and the TSO in partnership with Portico Dance Company has put together a special performance of the 1927 jazz ballet, La Revue de Cuisine. It playfully tells a kitchen love story in which a dastardly spoon tries to come between the brewing romance between a kettle and a lid. The whole thing ends when a disembodied foot appears to boot everyone off the stage.
This performance will be one of only several food-themed events at Philbrook this Saturday, November 12. There will be art projects, a short talk by Taylor Hansen about the Food on the Move program, museum tours, and a scavenger hunt. Best of all, these events, including museum admission, are all free. So please come on what looks like a beautiful weekend for a collaborative, family-friendly celebration of art and food. The program runs through the day, with performances of the ballet at 11:30am and 2:00pm.
