Dream on the Farm – 5 Performances
August 6, 2020 | 7:00 pm - August 10, 2020 | 8:30 pm
Farm Arts Collective is continuing its outdoor arts programming in the summer of 2020 with DREAM ON THE FARM, a live theatre performance on a farm and designed for small groups in the time of Covid 19.
DREAM ON THE FARM is created and performed by the Farm Arts Collective ensemble of 15 musicians, actors, stilt walkers, ecologists, farmers, and members of the Lenape-Nation of PA. Directed by artistic director Tannis Kowalchuk, the experience is designed as a walking tour around the farm.
The story brings the character of Mother Nature to the farm where she has decided to hold an Extinction Event to warn humans of their destructive and risky behavior on the planet. The play features characters that include DJFrog, Spider, Praying Mantis, Farmer, Stardust, Deer, Storm Chaser, Pigeon, Cavewoman, Deity of the Atmosphere.
5 Performances will take place Thursday-Monday AUGUST 6-10 at 7 PM at Willow Wisp Organic Farm. Please arrive no later than 6:45 PM to be seated.
This year, the audiences attending DREAM ON THE FARM will be limited to 60 (down 50% from our normal capacity). To keep spectators and performers safe, we will divide the audience up in to groups of 12 people. Each small group will walk together with a “Dream Walker” who will guide them to different locations around the 30 acre farm, to witness a scene performed in a beautiful agricultural setting.
