ABOUT: Join The Farm for a final wrap up of the Participate program in a special 2 hour workshop that is for everybody from dance aficionados to novices. Don’t hang back by the wallpaper, hit the dance floor underneath the glitter ball and and find the ways we connect when we dance with abandon. Part disco and part voodoo ritual, The Farm will lead a class that focuses on the communication between people when they work (and play!) together. We will learn how to stay responsive and present in yourself while at the same time being completely aware of each other. After all isn’t that the way we’re all going to save the world?

ABOUT THE COMPANY: Based on the Gold Coast with roots in Berlin, The Farm are driven by a desire to connect to anyone, from dance and theatre virgins to aficionados and professionals. Often described as cinematic, our work is based on universal subjects and themes that matter.
