The Royal Frog Ballet // The Surrealist Cabaret
September 21st – 23rd, 5 pm start time
Location: Feast & Field Market site
Sunset! Field! Action! The Royal Frog Ballet returns to Feast and Field this fall with their Surrealist Cabaret, a glittering, contemplative, and hilarious performance set in the hills and dells of Barnard at sunset. The outdoor performance and installation event walks the audience through farm landscape where they encounter a surreal collection of short stories, dance, installation pieces, and roving characters that explore and celebrate themes of season, place, and what it means to be human in these times. It is a folky, comedic, and deeply thought-provoking evening for all ages.
Founded ten years ago in Amherst, MA as an outdoor works-in-progress showing for a group of friends, The Surrealist Cabaret has turned into a wild celebration of season and landscape, death and regrowth, stories and community, featuring collaborating artists from across the north east. The event delights and befuddles with swarms of dancing skeletons, wind swept poets, moving sculpture, sequined parades, illuminated puppets, costumed musicians, and more. Tucked throughout the farm landscape, the characters and stories ooze out of the fields as if they were always there, just under the layer of our everyday routines: magical, luminescent, and just a dash of spooky. Each year, artists in the collective create individual ‘acts’ for The Cabaret based on a common theme and weave them together to create a bizarre smorgasbord of style, aesthetic, and metaphor; Like a good circus, there is always something for everyone!
