BEING: Our new Outdoor Video Project
A handful of intergenerational artists gathered at The Prout Hill Arts and Recreation Monastery to document a journey. Filming is Complete. We are in the final video Editing Stages. Cosmic Hue (Craig Norton and Kalidasa Joseph Getter) will work in the studio to create the score -in support of this simple exploration of what it is to ‘BE”… Working in Neutral Masks (hand made by Venetian mask Maker, Adriano Bertolini) moving from Isolation to Connection, this silent short film witnesses several unique and similar, whole and simple beings as they come into BEING through Awakening to Connection to Nature, to the s(S)elf and ultimately to Community. A journey of individuation and connection to one's Essential Being.
Premier Screening Dates TBA!
THE ONE WHO - project in development
The ARTFARM ensemble is developing a new work.
This piece is site specific and will be held outdoors
at a land trust in East Haddam, Connecticut.
The Title is The One Who.
The One Who is inspired by Kuan Yin (“the one who heard the suffering of the world’)- and inspired compassionate action.
Our company is exploring our relationship to the land, to our bodies, to one another and eventually to the audiences that join us for this walking observation, discovery and experiential exploration.
We recognize ritual as the origins of theater (the Theater of Dionysus), Ritual as container and marker of initiation and transition, Ritual as individual, joint and community space for healing and transformation.
Coming from an earth-based, mindfulness spiritual practice we are interested in the exploration of the nature of consciousness and holding space with and for other people to embark upon their own personal journeys.
ARTFARM leadership has been facilitating earth-based circles for over 30 years.
