RE/EMERGENCE:

A Post-apocalyptic Performance Meditation for Hope and Healing 


RE/EMERGENCE is a post-apocalyptic performance that examines grief, initiation, envisioning, and healing as a community after a year of  unprecedented upheaval. Looking to nature and its transformative powers,  audience members are invited to reflect, meditate, and nurture a new vision of the future. 

The performance asks audience members to walk through and around several fields to witness a series of short performances. There will be chairs stationed at each performance for anyone wishing to sit. The performance area is a ten-minute walk from the main parking area. Please email us for questions or concerns related to accessibility support.
Our performance will happen June 11-13th & 18-20th at
Park Hill Orchard in Easthampton, MA.
We have three performances each evening, at 6:00pm, 6:50pm, and 7:40pm. Each performance lasts approximately 50 minutes.
In the event of rain or weather related events, please check your email, our facebook page, instagram or website for information and further instructions. 
Our performance has been carefully designed to consider precautions around Covid-19.  Social distance and mask are required at this time. All audience members must purchase a ticket ahead of time to allow for contact tracing if necessary.
We cannot accept walk-ins to our performances.


Who are we? 

The Re/Emergence Collective is a group of theater-makers and frequent collaborators who gathered in artistic community over the past year to devise this performance. We processed the many challenges of the year’s events through our artistic practice. We have leaned heavily on more collective ways of art making rather than the traditional hierarchical theater model in order to practice the kind of inclusive systems in theater that we hope to see more of in the future. We view this project as an act of service to our community, and we are so grateful for the support of our mentors, community members, and artistic organizations which have supported our efforts thus far.

What is your vision for the future? 

"Is art resistance? Can you plant a garden to stop a war? It depends how you think about time. It depends what you think a seed does, if it’s tossed into fertile soil. But it seems to me that whatever else you do, it’s worth tending to paradise, however you define it and wherever it arises." - Olivia Laing
