Play! out of the Barn: Donald Giovanni in Cornlandia

Play! out of the Barn: Donald Giovanni in Cornlandia
A Picnic Operetta By Mixed Precipitation

 

Republican candidates converge on a small agrarian town in Middle America. Real Estate tycoon Donald Giovanni and his campaign staff have left a trail of broken hearts and broken promises in their attempt to woo voters. Now a strange supernatural force has been ignited to bring him down. It’s a mix of Mozart, ’80s pop, and hair bands! Tasty, garden fresh bites will be served throughout the show to celebrate harvest and campaign fever.

This one-of-a-kind show is directed by Kym Longhi, with a new script by music director Jerrod Wendland. The classic Italian comedic opera meets ’80s hair bands and modern day political drama. Along with music by Mozart and Italian libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte, the cast sinks their teeth into the songs of Bon Jovi, AC/DC, Lionel Richie, and Tears for Fears.

Fun for all ages, this mix of theater, food, and music runs approximately one hour and 15 minutes.

Suggested ticket price $10. Call 507.352.4255 to reserve tickets.

Mixed Precipitation is a performance company exploring text, space and form with festive theatrical events that inspire social engagement. The Picnic Operetta is a lively theater experience touring to community gardens and other green spaces. A five-course tasting menu of locally grown, performance-inspired delicacies is served during each show bringing together classical music, horticulture, food, and storytelling into a celebration of ecosystems.

Onion Fest: Workshop on the Farm: The Art of Kolam (Rice Flour Drawing)

Workshop on the Farm: The Art of Kolam (Rice Flour Drawing)
A hands-on visual art activity with Ragamala Dance Company

Each day before sunrise, in southeastern India, millions of women create Kolams—intricate designs made of dry rice flour—on the ground in front of their homes. This daily ritual creates a sacred space and becomes a link between the intimate home and the vastness of the outside world. Throughout the day, birds and insects eat the rice flour, creating a conscious act of giving back to the Earth a bit of what we have taken from it.

The philosophy at the heart of the Kolam tradition—which values the interconnectedness between humanity and the natural world—served as an inspiration for choreographers Ranee and Aparna Ramaswamy in creating Sacred Earth.  

In the stunning setting of DreamAcres farm, participants will learn to make their own traditional Kolam designs with rice flour on the ground. Ragamala artists will introduce them to the history of this age-old ritual and how it has been sustained in contemporary, cosmopolitan India, where it provides a daily reminder of the importance of respecting the Earth.

Onion Fest: Play! in the Barn: Sacred Earth

Play! in the Barn: Sacred Earth
By Ragamala Dance Company

 

Sacred Earth is a performance by Ragamala Dance Company. This work explores the interconnectedness between human emotions and the environments that shape them. The dancers create a sacred space to honor the divinity in the natural world and the sustenance we derive from it. Sacred Earth is Ranee and Aparna Ramaswamy's singular vision of the beautiful, fragile relationship between nature and man.

» www.ragamaladance.org

Suggested ticket price $10. Call 507.352.4255 to reserve tickets.

Under the direction of Ranee Ramaswamy and Aparna Ramaswamy, Ragmala Dance Company's work explores the dynamic tension between the ancestral and the contemporary. As choreographers and performers, Ranee and Aparna create dance landscapes that dwell in opposition — secular and spiritual life, inner and outer worlds, human and natural concerns, rhythm and stillness — to find the transcendence that lies in between. As mother and daughter, each brings her generational experience to the work — the rich traditions, deep philosphical roots, and ancestral wisdom of India meeting and merging with their hybridic perspective as Indian-American artists. 

Now in its 23rd year, Ragamala Dance Company’s Co-directors, Ranee Ramaswamy and Aparna Ramaswamy, have developed over 30 full evenings of work, through which they have created their own specific sub-genre that combines a contemporary Western aesthetic with an Indian ethos. Ragamala creates work that conveys a sense of reverence, of unfolding mystery, of universal celebration, offering new paradigms for cultural hybridity in the 21st century. 

Ragamala’s work is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, National Dance Project, MAP Fund, New Music/USA, USArtists International, Japan Foundation, American Composers Forum, and a Joyce Award. Ragamala is an empaneled group with the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (of the Government of India). 

Called “soulful, imaginative and rhythmically contagious"  (The New York Times), Ragamala’s work has been commissioned by the Walker Art Center (MN), Lincoln Center (NY), Krannert Center (IL), Clarice Smith PAC (MD), Opening Nights at FSU (FL), and the Fine Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), and presented by American Dance Festival (NC), Kennedy Center (DC), Music Center of L.A.(CA), University Musical Society (MI), Just Festival (U.K.), Bali Arts Festival (Indonesia) & National Centre for Performing Arts (Mumbai, India).

Ragamala's performance and workshop are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

Play! in the Barn: Is it Feasible

Is it Feasible? is a one-man show based on Bulgarian short stories by Chudomir and performed by Zlatomir Moldovanski. Bulgaria is a nation with a history that spans over thirteen centuries. It has been a khanate, a principality, a kingdom, a communist state and finally — a free-market social democracy. The character and mannerisms of the Bulgarian people are unique, authentic, and unparalleled. Chudomir’s short stories and anecdotes truly contain those quintessential intricacies of Bulgarian culture that “expose, humiliate, outrage and ultimately make us laugh.”

Music on the Farm: Maritza

Maritza performs during Pizza service. 

Maritza’s repertoire includes evocatively beautiful melodies forged in the passionate history of Europe and Russia, lively Jewish wedding dance horas and frailachs, Gypsy (Romany) music, and twisting rhythmic line dance tunes from Bulgaria, Romania, Macedonia and Greece. 

Named for a river in Bulgaria, Maritza was born during a jam session among Pine Wilson and friends in 1998 in Decorah, Iowa. Pine’s love for Eastern European music and folk dance was the impetus for the band to take shape. Thanks to the enthusiastic and fun-filled tune ideas of many musicians over the years, Maritza keeps the beat going!
