Easthampton, MA October 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22 The Surrealist Cabaret at Park Hill Orchard
The Royal Frog Ballet returns to Park Hill Orchard this fall with their Surrealist Cabaret, a glittering, contemplative, and hilarious performance set in the apple studded fields at sunset. The outdoor performance and installation event walks the audience through the orchard landscape where they encounter a surreal collection of short stories, dance, installation pieces, and roving characters that explore and celebrate themes of season, place, and what it means to be human in these times. It is a folky, comedic, and deeply thought-provoking evening for all ages. Outdoor performances of The Surrealist Cabaret will take place at Park Hill Orchard Friday through Sunday October 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, and 22. All performances begin promptly at 5pm. Please arrive early. Founded ten years ago in Amherst, MA as an outdoor works-in-progress showing for a group of friends, The Surrealist Cabaret has turned into a wild celebration of season and landscape, death and regrowth, stories and community, featuring collaborating artists from across the north east. The event delights and befuddles with swarms of dancing skeletons, wind swept poets, moving sculpture, sequined parades, illuminated puppets, costumed musicians, and more. Tucked throughout the farm landscape, the characters and stories ooze out of the fields as if they were always there, just under the layer of our everyday routines: magical, luminescent, and just a dash of spooky. Each year, artists in the collective create individual acts for The Cabaret based on a common theme and weave them together to create a bizarre smorgasbord of style, aesthetic, and metaphor; Like a good circus, there is always something for everyone! This years theme, At The Root, is sure to dig deep. The Royal Frog Ballet is thrilled to be collaborating once again with Park Hill Orchard to bring their two forms of field magic together. Both enterprises share a common goal of connecting people to the place they live in, the land that feeds them, and to each other, with performers and audience members all feeling the same crisp air and watching the same fall sunset. The Royal Frog Ballet is a collective of performance and visual artists, who collaborate to create landscape based work that blends ritual and humor to create a wacky brand of conceptual folk art built for fields, puddles and woodlands. They take inspiration from season, magic, and the everyday. Originally based in western MA, they now rest their heads across the nation, but come together to create work several times a year.
