Nature Theater of Oklahoma talks to internationally respected artist/choreographer Meg Stuart about improvisation, inspiration, structure, abstraction and strategies for working.  If we were to go off in the woods on a vision quest somewhere and learn something from each other – what would that look like?  (And when will we find the time to do it?)

Nature Theater of Oklahoma talks to Serbian actress Masha Dakic about acting, isolation, irrelevance, and audiences – both local and global. As an actor, can you make work that has an immediacy and relevance that can compete with the immediacy of real circumstances people struggle with in their daily lives at this moment?  And what does Meryl Streep have to do with it?

Nature Theater of Oklahoma talks to Anja Suša, co-curator (with founder Jovan Ćirilov) of the BITEF Festival in Belgrade, about striking a balance in the ever-changing social, political and cultural environment of southeastern Europe.  What strategies has she employed as a curator to keep this historically forward and avant-garde festival going inside a country where the reigning minister of culture Bratislav Petković, recently announced that “art has to be patriotic” and that Serbia must “insist on the traditional values of our nation”?

Nature Theater of Oklahoma talks to world-renowned Italian (and American! – from Kansas!) theater artist Romeo Castellucci about religion, moral imperative, spectatorship, time, and play.  A show in which we dare to ask the question “Romeo Castellucci, if you got fired from theater, what would you do with your life?”

Nature Theater of Oklahoma talks to composer and director Heiner Goebbels, currently curator of the music and arts festival Ruhrtriennale, about their mutual interest in recorded audio -- plus extreme experimental art strategies such as being lazy, watching bad television, and leaving the room in order to stay as open as possible to unexpected chance opportunities.

In their first OK Radio podcast after Pavol’s sudden hospitalization in Hamburg, Nature Theater of Oklahoma talks to director and curator Matthias von Hartz, (outgoing director of the Internationale Sommerfestival Kampnagel in Hamburg, and new director of Foreign Affairs Festival in Berlin) about strategies for how to keep going and keep working in the wake of personal crisis.  Can and should we create a space in our life for something other than our work to take precedence?
