Oak

Oak

book, music & lyrics by Kate Douglas

Oak is a song cycle concert piece told over the lifespan of a single tree, braiding together the stories of the individuals who encountered that Oak with a sweeping review of the American relationship to the natural world since colonization. How have our attitudes about nature shaped us individually and as a society, and where will this take us in the future?

Oak has been developed at Art Farm in Nebraska.
