Nature Theater of Oklahoma with Philip Bither

Philip Bither

Nature Theater of Oklahoma talks to Philip Bither, Senior Curator of Performing Arts at Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, about ego, humility and identity. Is it an arrogant act to program work (or make work) that you may personally feel is important—for an audience who may not want that kind of challenge? What is the grass roots work a good curator has to do to find and foster public interest (as populist as we can make it) in these so-called “difficult” works?

Nature Theater of Oklahoma talks with Oskar Eustis, director of The Public Theater in New York City about leadership, ethics and idealism. How does Oskar navigate the economic disparity he encounters every day running an arts institution that has to both market itself to wealthy backers and nurture an often very impoverished community of working artists? What are the possibilities he sees in the future toward making a better, more sustainable working environment—and ultimately better art—in the American theater?
