Nature Theater of Oklahoma has performed at the Kaaitheater several times before. The company led by Pavol Liska and Kelly Copper recently disbanded, so the pair decided to launch a new project.
The pursuit of happiness is, after all, a fundamental right according to the American Declaration of Independence. Liska and Copper explore this striving in a neo-Western horror comedy about expansion in the Wild West.
The piece is a collaboration with the EnKnapGroup, a dance company from the Slovenian capital Ljubljana. The New York Times described this piece as “one of the wildest things you’ll see this year”, and we agree wholeheartedly.
