Nature Theater of Oklahoma

Nature Theater of Oklahoma is an OBIE-Award winning New York performance group under the direction of Pavol Liska and Kelly Copper. Since “Poetics: a ballet brut”, the 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 unsettling live situations that demands total presence from everyone in the room. They use the readymade material around them, found space, overheard speech and observed gesture, and through extreme formal manipulation, and superhuman effort, they affect a shift in the perception of everyday reality that extends beyond the site of performance and into the world in which we live.
