The Nature Theater of Oklahoma is a performing arts group under the direction of Pavol Liska and Kelly Copper. The name is derived from “The Nature Theater of Oklahoma,” the final destination that the protagonist of Kafka’s novel The Man Who Disappeared (Amerika) is heading toward. The performing arts group has been based in New York since the 90s, and is known for its extreme performance style and challenging artistic limits with every work; it boasts a cult-like popularity wherever the group goes.

The work to be staged for Aichi Triennale 2019 is commissioned and performed by, internationally active Slovenian dance company EN-KNAP Group. The exaggerated literary style of the dialogue and the razor-sharp gestures take the absurdity to new heights in this allegorical parody Western, as told through the bodies of highly trained performers. This work brings to the fore both the ambition and the emptiness of the United States of America, a nation founded on the principle of “the pursuit of happiness.”

Co-production with Théâtre de la Ville and Steirischer Herbst
