The Oak Cliff Cultural Center is proud to partner with Over the Bridge Arts in presenting and hosting Burning Woman, a full length curated visual and performing arts production that encompasses artists of all backgrounds, ethnicities, genders, sexualities and ages in an inspiring multi-genre experience. The theme is Save The Planet, and the festival illuminates environmental concerns through the lens of performing and visual arts.

Ticketed performances begin at 8:00 PM on both nights. The visual art exhibition will be on view through December 15, 2023. Each performance is followed by a free “meet the artists” reception.

Over the Bridge Arts is a multi-genre arts nonprofit founded in Oak Cliff in 2017 that provides a platform for inclusive creative expression, connection and community for new and evolving artists. Founded on the belief that our community needs diversity, inclusion, and unity, Over the Bridge Arts is an organization that opens its doors to everyone. Burning Woman was founded by director Lori Sundeen Soderbergh in 2018 as a female creative response to the #metoo movement. It has since expanded to include all genders.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. Tickets to the performances are $20 general admission and $10 for seniors.
