Call storyboard scene programmatically (without needing segue)?

I have a modal storyboard scene that I want to be accessible to all my other scenes. Creating a modal segue to it from every scene on my storyboard creates a big mess of strings going everywhere. Is there a way that I leave off the segues and call the scene programmatically instead?

Basically I want to do something like this:

MyNewViewController *myNewVC = [[MyNewViewController alloc] init];
[self presentModalViewController:myNewVC animated:YES];


except instead of creating and pushing a view controller class, I want to do a modal transition to an "isolated" (not connected with a segue) storyboard scene.

Answer

Yes you can. Do something like this to get access to the VC, then just Modal Push it:

UIStoryboard *storyboard = [UIStoryboard storyboardWithName:@"MainStoryboard_iPhone" bundle:nil];
    MyNewViewController *myVC = (MyNewViewController *)[storyboard instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier:@"myViewCont"];
