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.

Farm Arts Collective is a farm-based community hub where art and performance intersect with agrarian and ecological ideas.

Farm Arts Collective makes its home in a large greenhouse centrally located at our home, Willow Wisp Organic Farm, a solar-powered organic vegetable farm serving northeast Pennsylvania, the Catskills, and New York City.

The Farm Arts Collective is home to workshops, performance, meals, and special events that engage community members in education and creative practice that deepens connection to place and each other.
