Witness the production and performance of a musical unfold gradually in the unusual setting of an art gallery, as Berlin-based artist Christopher Kline brings O.K. – The Musical to Tate Liverpool.

The gallery spaces will be turned into a working set as people of all ages and backgrounds from Liverpool and Lancashire meet, rehearse and prepare for the show – from acting and singing to set design, lighting and prop-making – using their own experiences to influence the direction of the narrative. Tate visitors can then drop in throughout the day to observe the show as it comes to life, with performances of the finished musical on 29 and 30 April.

The project explores and restages the history and folklore of Kline’s home of Kinderhook in New York State, and is part of an annual series of experimental commissions called We Have Your Art Gallery. You may remember the first, Art Gym, from spring last year, when the Tate became an interactive creative workout space that swapped kettlebells and treadmills for lectures, workshops and art stations.
