Fertile Grounds, June 2-11
Civic Ensemble presents the world premiere of Fertile Grounds by Katie Ka Vang, directed by Carley Robinson.
Fertile Grounds is the powerful story of loss, grief, healing, and connection. This world premiere community-based play invites the audience onto a BIPOC farming cooperative to explore what it means to be well, and to heal.
I've had the joy of supporting production for this play and am constantly blown away by the thought, care and creativity Civic brings to its work. Tickets are pay-what-you-can!
Cirque du Soleil clown Daniel Passer and Cornell professor of performing and media arts Beth Milles are co-creating a clown play about memory to premiere at The Cherry Arts. Inspired by a village designed for people faced with cognitive decline, and research emerging from the village, Heading into Night explores the unexpected humor and discoveries to be found in the loss of memory, deeply honoring the experience of people whose memories are fading.
“Looking through the lens of clown, and bringing a sense of joy and childlike innocence to the theme of memory, has been a rich landscape to explore. I love collaborating with Beth and dreaming up the impossible and striving to bring it to life.” – Daniel Passer
