Avoid the hex of the unbeliever! See both these shows by Nature Theater of Oklahoma, an exciting young performance group based in New York and directed by Pavol Liska and Kelly Copper. Their creative stagecraft transforms ready-made materials and found dialogue into revelatory DIY theater.
Poetics: a ballet brut is a wryly constructed dance piece delightfully unhampered by its performers’ complete lack of formal dance training. It takes a vast assortment of common gestures and movements to hilarious new heights. As it unfolds, Poetics expands from casual encounters to a delightfully skewed dance of life of grand proportions. The Village Voice calls it “smart, witty, highly physical, and eager to twist notions of theatricality.”
