In The Field







In The Field brought site-specific theatre to an urban organic community
vegetable
field. It was a collaboration between Sense of Place Projects and CERES Community Environment
Park in Brunswick, Melbourne. The
project involved eight months of vegetable growing and rehearsal onsite, and culminated in a
sublime and lively performance that weaved together farming
stories and sensitive, spirited responses to the local landscape. Throughout the process we grew a creative language that opened new ways of seeing the place,
inspired and enriched urban vegetable growing activities, and connected the audience
members and participating artists to the local landscape.
