Omaha Under the Radar

As part of the Generator Series, Omaha Under the Radar presents “How are you, really?” a virtual program of films set to new, original scores exploring health in one of our most difficult years in memory.  The program features original film scores by composers from the United States, Mexico, and India.  One video looks at how mugger crocodiles and people manage to live in close proximity in Western India.  Another explores sexuality, sanity and family pressures set to film clips from a 1919 Mexican film, El Automovil Gris (The Gray Car).  Another is an original score created for a 1947 educational film teaching about hygiene and how to avoid illness. 

Curator Stacey Barelos checked in with Mike Hogan to discuss the program and the work that went into collaborating during a pandemic.

Omaha Under the Radar emerged from a desire to support innovative performers and creators living and working in the Midwest, and to connect this community to other performance communities throughout the United States.

Since the first festival, held in 2014, Omaha Under the Radar has presented over 300 artists of divergent backgrounds and disciplines.  They work to represent a multiplicity of genres, ideas, and identities through performances, talks, group discussions and educational opportunities.

Festival Director Amanda DeBoer Bartlett joins Mike Hogan "Live & Local" to discuss the sixth annual "Omaha Under the Radar Festival" which will offer plenty to smile about, as well as plenty to laugh about, discuss over drinks, and remember for years to come.  Using Omaha's most electric venues for live performances of the highest caliber created by artists who seize their craft and surprise even the most experienced attendees.  The festival takes place this year from July 24th through the 27th.
