Artist Christopher Kline has written and directed the history of his home town, Kinderhook, New York State, in musical theatre form. The whole production has been created in collaboration with local people of all ages from Merseyside and Lancashire. As part of O.K.– The Musical, they have made sets, props, costumes and have come together to act, sing and play instruments. Participants include The Choir with No Name, The Royal Court Community Choir, Young Person’s Advisory Service and, from Burnley, the arts groups Ground Up, Valley Street Textiles Studio and the newly assembled O.K. Troupe Burnley. Tate Liverpool’s Family and Community Collectives and students from across all of Liverpool’s colleges and universities are also contributing.
Commissioned as part of the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme and in partnership with Super Slow Way.
