Walker Art Center announces its 2013-14 performing arts season
Nature Theater of Oklahoma, "Life and Times: Episode 1"
If one thing is guaranteed each year, it's that the Walker Art Center will bring an eclectic and challenging variety of performances to its space. This morning, the modern-art museum announced its upcoming schedule, and it looks like 2013 and 2014 will be no exception to this precedent.

Highlights of the schedule include three Walker-commissioned projects pairing local artists -- Aparna Ramaswamy, Zenon Dance Company, Channy Leaneagh (Polica) -- with national and international artists. Innovative dance duo HIJACK will be celebrating 20 years of entertaining, strange, and DIY performances, while the Trisha Brown Dance Company will reflect on 40 years of dance before disbanding.

Check out some other cool things scheduled -- including Choreographers' Evenings and Out There 2014 -- below.
