Nature Theater of Oklahoma talks to playwright and performer Sibyl Kempson about adjustments we have to make when real life gets more dramatic than theater. How do we weigh life and death against the old showbiz notion of “the show must go on”? Also, enjoy as we share a few choice words about ambient theater, New Jersey theater, theater for dogs, cats, cavemen and aliens – among others (We also try podcasting with our eyes closed to see what we look like inside ourselves).

In August 2012, Kelly Copper and Pavol Liska (directors of the performing arts group Nature Theater of Oklahoma) launched OK Radio, a series of podcasts in which they talk with artists, performers, choreographers, theater makers and curators around the world and post these conversations for free online: “The podcasts are all long-form conversations in the spirit of the radio conversations of John Cage and Morton Feldman. We talk about everything from work to concerns about mortality, morality, politics, culture—cheese. . .and then some. Nothing is off limits. Join us on tour as we talk to artists in Serbia, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany, New York and elsewhere. . .OK Radio goes with us everywhere we go.”
