I spoke with Pavol Liska and Kelly Copper, the Artistic Directors of
Nature Theater of Oklahoma, ahead of their Melbourne International Arts
Festival season of Life and Times: Episodes 1-4. An epic 10-hour
performance that narrates the life story of Kristin Worrall, one of the
company members, Life and Times will eventually have 10 episodes with a
combined running time of 24 hours.
The company’s earlier work No Dice, presented at the Sydney Festival in
2009, was an astonishingly inventive four-hour musing on storytelling
constructed from recorded phone conversations.
