A Brief History of Farming

Farm Arts Collective ensemble is working on a new outdoor theatre performance set to tour to venues, parades, festivals and cultural events this summer. Directed by Tannis Kowalchuk with text by ensemble member Mark Dunau, long time farmer and playwright, the performance takes the audience on a 70,000 year journey from the era of hunter gatherer cultures, to the first farmers in the fertile crescent, to today’s monoculture society. The play calls for the preservation of crop, seed, and cultural diversity.
