What: Flourish Summer Camp Public Performances

Where: DreamAcres Farm, Wykoff, MN

Who: All welcome

Cost: Pay-what-you-can

Flourish Summer Camp welcomes the public to student performances on Friday, August 8 at 8 p.m. and Saturday, August 9 at 3 p.m. on DreamAcres Farm outside Wykoff, Minn. The Friday event follows wood-fired pizza service out of the farm kitchen from 5-8 p.m. Both shows are pay-what-you-can.

Flourish mingles the performing arts with small-scale agriculture. Teaching artists for the 2014 session are puppeteer Malia Burkhart, vocalist Mankwe Ndosi, dancer Dustin Haug, drummer Truth Maze, designer John Musial, and theatre artist (camp director) Eva Barr. Working with these artists as mentors, students create pieces of performance to express what is on their minds. Many pieces are performed outside or in “site-specific” locations. Audience should be prepared for surprises and ready to move around the farm .

Flourish is a program of the Dreamery Rural Arts Initiative which 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.

Scholarships for the camp are supported by a grant through the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council with funds from the Minnesota State Legislature.
