Nature Theater of Oklahoma talks to NPR correspondent Robert Smith about radio, reporting and storytelling. What happens when we put extreme constraints of time on narrative–as in durational theater and art projects (such as Chris Marclay’s The Clock and our current project, Life and Times)–and in public radio, which is typically built in short 3-6 minute story segments? We also examine the ways in which live performance and radio are both shaped, respectively, by the physical presence and absence of their audience.
