Making Space is an annual event hosted by Tbd. - An Omaha Based Dance Collective featuring performance and choreography created by both local and regional artists. Artists involved seek to experiment with the creative process of movement based performance through collaboration, varying thematic elements, and site-specific guidelines within the space.
The goal of Making Space is to foster an interdisciplinary environment for movement artists to present new work, to encourage dialogue about choreography, and support the growth and appreciation of modern/contemporary dance within the community of Omaha. | 02-18-2017

By Wednesday December 6th the camp was considerably more empty than when we arrived Saturday night. Despite this, it seemed that a couple thousand or more were staying to face the consistently harsh winter to come. | Photos from 12-07-2016
One day two of my stay at Oceti Sakowin Camp I witnessed my first direct action. A group of water protectors and veterans marched to the police barricade near the bridge. Heavy snow and winds made it difficult to stay dry or keep debris from getting on the lens. In the veteran area of the camp there seemed to be two factions: one for marching to the bridge and one against it. Ultimately hundreds stood on the road. I left the action after an hour and a half, not knowing how long it would continue into the evening, and needing to return to warmth. Some photos show the camp I was lucky to sleep in, complete with warm yurts supplied by BOLD Nebraska. You can donate to Oceti Sakowin Camp here. | Photos from 12-05-2016
I arrived at Oceti Sakowin Camp from Omaha, NE very early on the morning of Dec. 4th. I had no idea how eventful the day would be. After a short sleep our group woke at dawn to attend the morning prayer and water ceremony. I dressed poorly and returned to the yurt after to get warmer clothing. This would turnout to be the warmest day in my time at camp, reaching the high 30’s by mid-afternoon. I traveled to a nearby plot of land where BOLD Nebraska had donated supplies for three solar sheds. The sheds were intended to house workers who would be building larger earth lodges nearby. There I met Mekasi and Matthew two Native American folks who were leading construction of the inside of the sheds. Simultaneously 2000+ veterans were arriving at camp. There was a line of cars waiting to enter the camp so when Mekasi, Matthew, and I went back to camp to retrieve the solar panel it took 45+ minutes. We did our best to start insulating and put up plywood panels until the tool batteries died.
When Mekasi returned he joyfully announced that the Army Corps of Engineers had refused to grant Energy Transfer Partners an easement to drill under Lake Oahe. There was a celebratory air in the camp that I had not expected to see, let alone on my very first day. It didn’t last long as folks quickly began to speculate as to whether or not it would immediately halt construction and drilling. | Photos from 12-04-2016
