Performance season opens on Dreamacres Farm


Fri, May 9th, 2014
Posted in Wykoff Arts & Culture

The Dreamery Rural Arts Initiative opens its season on DreamAcres Farm (outside Wykoff, Minn.) with Bluegrass music by Duluth’s own Riverside Bog Stompers on May 16 at 8pm in the farm’s barn. The event is pay-what-you-can, and follows wood-fired pizza service out of the farm kitchen. All ages are welcome to open the season with lively, foot-stomping sounds.

The season continues the following Friday, May 23, at 9 p.m. with a staged play-reading by former Lanesboro resident and Commonweal ensemble member Carla Noack. Noack reads Grounded, a one-woman play by George Brant about about a female fighter pilot who is reassigned to operate a military drone. The plays looks at the broader implications of the transition to drone warfare through a plausible fictional contemporary story. Noack performed the play in February in Kansas City. Audience should note the play contains adult content and is recommended for ages 18 and over. A discussion of the play will follow the reading.

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.
