Presented by Farmgate Theatre
PEI’s Farmgate Theatre is busy this month, presenting The Gathering, an outdoor multi-disciplinary event at Finally Farm in Bonshaw. Farmgate will welcome their first artist in residence this summer, performer Annie Lockerbie Newton, who will be featured in the August show. A recent graduate of esteemed school, École Internationale Jacques Lecoq in Paris, Annie will be creating an original piece based in clown and physical theatre, directed by Charlotte Gowdy. Other highlights for this event include Julie Pellissier-Lush and Joseph Beeley, who will lead a poetic forest walk; a live concert of Bhakti song around the campfire, led by well-known Canadian theatre actor and musician Eliza-Jane Scott; and the PEI debut of Julea Boswell’s colourful, mood-boosting and touchable visual art project, Painted Dances. There will also be a walk through a large scale labyrinth in the field, a recess snack, and time to socialize around the fire and meet the artists. Tickets are available at farmgatetheatre.ca. Rain date is August 20.
