Deer Crossing the Art Farm is coming to Gabriola and we want you to….
Come play with us!
In 2017, three ocean-based communities—Malcolm Island, Gabriola Island and the Sunshine Coast—will begin the creative development of their own rendition of The Rainforest Circus—Submerged, inspired by the story of water.
Professional artists will work with core teams of youth, children and local artists in each community to catalyze a community-engaged creation process exploring and celebrating the role and story of water in their region. Submerged will incorporate acrobatics, clowning, music, visual arts and physical theatre. The entire process, from story collection to production, will be documented, filmed and showcased on-line across the country.
Rainforest Circus Camps
Artists from the Rainforest Circus will visit Gabriola Island to host week-long Circus Camps. Participants will explore creative themes for the development of their own rendition of The Rainforest Circus—Submerged, inspired by the story of water. Artists will work with community members to develop their stories into circus productions, incorporating acrobatics, clowning, music, visual arts and physical theatre. NO Experience necessary! Just a willingness to play and submerge yourself into a collaborative process.
July 17th to 21st, 2017
