Nature Theater of Oklahoma talks with artists Christer Lundhal & Martina Seitl about shared practice and crossed disciplines. How do we open up new possibilities in perception, and create room for ambiguity and playful slippage in roles, in context, and in life. Do we have to go all the way to the moon – or Mars even – just to get a change in perspective?

We were very lucky to meet in Goteborg with the extremely intriguing art duo Lundahl & Seitl.
Nature Theater of Oklahoma talks with Swedish choreographer and filmmaker Gunilla Heilborn about levels of commitment. Do we always need to push it 200%? What about we just try 80% and call it a day? Join us as we examine our minimalist and maximalist tendencies and trace the influence of these habits and preferences on our work.

Nature Theater of Oklahoma talks with Swedish playwright and director Mattias Andersson of Backa Teater in Göteborg about local and global art. What does it mean to have a theater and to make work in the city where you grew up, to be in dialogue with a city of intimates? How do we make the personal public – or is it vice versa?

Nature Theater of Oklahoma talks with writer, editor, and theater thinker Tom Sellar about surrender and control – physical, mental, and structural. Join us as we clear the air – talking about artists and critics, and the whole interdependency and strangeness around that relationship. We rely on critics to write about the work, but what do we care about really? Do we want intelligent writing or just positive gush? Do critics appreciate that they are just seeing one performance and it all may be going horribly wrong? All this and even more thoughts about social practice, multi-media, durational performance, art brut, and political theater.
