Preview of Dream on the Farm
Wednesday, Aug. 4
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Dream on the Farm is a live, in-person site specific performance event held outdoors on Willow Wisp Organic Farm. The annual eco-drama is created and performed by Farm Arts Collective and incorporates live music, stilt walking, and dynamic physical performance exploring human-nature relationships in the face of climate change.
The performance is designed for an all-ages audience and invites spectators to walk the 25 acre farm (wear your farm boots). This year’s performance begins in a boxing ring where two famous scientists, astronomer Carl Sagan and microbiologist, Lynn Margulis return to planet earth to engage in a series of matches to help humanity save life on earth.
The performance features the Farm Arts Collective ensemble of performers, with live original music by Doug Rogers and Rima Fand, text by the ensemble and Melissa Bell , dramaturgy and co-direction by Mimi McGurl, and directed by Tannis Kowalchuk.
Dream on the Farm will run from Wednesday, August 4th to Sunday, August 8th at 7:00pm at Farm Arts Collective
