Feast on Onion Fest at DreamAcres Farm


Thu, Aug 14th, 2014
Posted in Wykoff Arts & Culture

The Dreamery Rural Arts Initiative welcomes all to Onion Fest, celebrating our diverse, multi-layered society through a multi-layered vegetable. It is an evening layered with food, music and performance at DreamAcres farm on Friday, August 22. Music by the CBBJ Band plays from 6-8 p.m., complementing the farm’s regular pizza service and special onion-inspired menu additions. At 8:30 p.m., Leslye Orr performs her one-woman-show, What I Thought I Saw (or Random Acts of Blindness) about the travails of being legally blind. These events are pay-what-you-can.

Leslye Orr is a seasoned Twin Cities actor, having credits with the Children’s Theatre and the Guthrie, among others. Audiences might remember her Dreamery performances of Women Who Drink (2007) and Tales from My Father (2009). About six years ago, she and her husband, Zaraawar Mistry, founded Dreamland Arts, a performance space in St. Paul dedicated to producing new work. Ms. Orr is also an author and an outspoken advocate for the blind and disabled, for an inclusive, accessible society. What I Thought I Saw is a frank and sometimes hilarious telling of life from a unique perspective.

On Saturday, August 23, Ms. Orr will offer a special performance of Hand-in-Hand, a show about Hellen Keller and Annie Sullivan that she developed to give the audience the sensation of being without sight. Audience members spend the one-hour show with their eyes closed and must rely on other senses to get a full “picture” of the action. This show will start at 10 a.m. in the DreamAcres barn. It is appropriate for ages 8 and up. Seating is limited for this event, so please call 507-352-4255 to reserve a chair. Cost is also pay-what-you-can.

The Play! in the Barn Series is generously supported by a grant through the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council with funds from the Minnesota State Legislature’s Arts and Culture allocation as approved by a vote of the citizens of Minnesota.

The Dreamery Rural Arts Initiative is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting and expanding arts experiences in rural Fillmore County, and to making use of renewable/sustainable energy sources to do so. Visit websites at www.dreamacresfarm.org. or www.dreameryruralartsinitiative.org.
