Christopher Kline: O.K. – The Musical (The Many Ghosts of Martin Van Buren)

WNTRP, Berlin, Germany

For the past two years, Christopher Kline has been working on, “O.K.”, an ongoing project based around the history and lore of the artist’s hometown of Kinderhook, New York. While the project often manifests as installations, artworks or texts, the linchpin has become the creation of an expansive community theatre musical developed slowly, scene by scene, over several years through workshops, performances and even a “TV show”, synthesizing and expanding on Kinderhook’s mythology to construct a fresh overview of local history.

At WNTRP, Kline presents “O.K. – The Musical (The Many Ghosts of Martin Van Buren)”, a scene of puppet theatre from a larger work which depicts the late President Martin Van Buren sitting in his study at his Kinderhook home Lindenwald.
