Seed. Lust. Savor...
August 28 & September 23, 2014
Gedney Farm, in New Marlborough MA
A celebration of the waning of the season- death, fertility and the promise of seeds. Within autumn there is a profound lust.... life longs for its death, but also want to continue itself. As May Sarton writes: "Fall is the release, the consumation." The Promenade explores that erotic pulse through spoken poetry, song, movement ritual and theatrical vignettes, as the audience walks or promenades from one to the other. Featuring the fabric sculptures of local artist Cynthia Atwood, it was a community Equinox ritual of sublime proportions.
