Join us in conversation with three performers from Nature Theater of OklahomaElisabeth ConnerAnne Gridley and Robert Johanson during their run of Life & Times: Episodes 1-4 at the Under the Radar Festival presented by Soho Rep and The Public Theater. 

NATURE THEATER OF OKLAHOMA is an award-winning New York art and performance group under the direction of Pavol Liska and Kelly Copper. Since Poetics: a ballet brut, their first dance piece created as an ensemble, Nature Theater of Oklahoma has been devoted to making the work they don’t know how to make, putting themselves in impossible situations, and working from out of their own ignorance and unease.  They strive to create an unsettling live situation that demands total presence from everyone in the room. They use readymade materials around them, found space, overheard speech, and observed gesture, and through extreme formal manipulation, and superhuman effort, they affect in their work a shift in the perception of everyday reality that extends beyond the site of performance and into the world in which we live.
