About the show:
Hubbard Hall’s Third Annual Winter Carnival of New Work features The Farming Plays Project, an ensemble-based new work created in collaboration with hundreds of local public school students and members of the farming community in Washington and Rensselaer counties. The play, a tapestry of poetry, stories, scenes and monologues culled from approximately 20 hours of interviews and over 50 hours of free workshops in Cambridge, Greenwich and Hoosick Falls Public Schools, will be performed by an ensemble of ten local artists, including members of the farming community. Running approximately 45 minutes, each performance will be accompanied by a post-show discussion about issues found in the play and not found in the play. While this Winter Carnival focuses on a single theme and piece, the cast and creative team will be editing and reworking the piece throughout the run based on audience responses. So audiences have an opportunity to see a piece truly developed over the course of seven public performances. “From the very beginning of this process, I knew we’d be skimming the surface of this very important discussion in this first year, just given the timing and our capacity,” says Hubbard Hall Executive & Artistic Director David Snider. “There are so many people we have yet to interview and hear from and many issues raised but not fleshed out in this first piece. I’ve come to think of The Farming Plays Project as an ongoing, multi-year project. We could – and probably will – explore and discuss farming for many years to come as a community-based arts center. Farming is the heart and soul of our region, so it’d hard to be truly community-based and not engage with it in some small but deep way. We hope this piece helps raise awareness of current issues and appreciation for the extraordinarily difficult work done in our community to feed the world on a daily basis.”
