“Life and Times is the most ambitious theatrical undertaking of my generation.”
– Time Out New York
Based on the life story of one of Nature Theater of Oklahoma's own company members, Life and Times
uses transcripts from 16 hours of recorded telephone interviews as the source for an epic spectacle nearly a decade in the making. Previous episodes have taken the form of opera, dance, theater, animation, and illuminated manuscript. To complete this massive Obie Award–winning event, LAB presents the U.S. premiere of the culminating three parts: episodes seven to nine, films primarily shot on and around the Bard campus in the summer of 2014, which take inspiration from Citizen Kane
, French New Wave, early Cinemascope, and gangsta rap videos.The screening will run approximately five hours with one 30-minute intermission.
