The Farm to Ballet Project is an original ballet about a farm through the seasons. Dancing vegetables, familiar animals, and even the seasons themselves come to life through dance in a joyful and entertaining show.
The ballet explores the relationship between farmers and land, natural food cycles, and the human role in ecosystems.
Bring your appetite for tasty local vendors serving up Indian food from Dosa Kitchen and American street food from Stone Church!
While at Retreat Farm, visit the animals on pasture, explore the Forest Playground, and wind your way through the labyrinth of the Hope Garden
The Farm to Ballet Project is performed outside at farms and ticket sales are shared with the farm to help implement regenerative agriculture projects.
"Retreat Farm seeks to foster a just, healthy, and sustainable community in southern Vermont. We utilize our unique property, programs, and partnerships to connect people to the land and to one another, recognizing that the relationship between humans and the land is the foundation of our health, sustenance, and inspiration. Located on traditional Abenaki homelands in Brattleboro, Vermont, Retreat Farm encompasses over 500 acres of conserved forests, farmlands, trails, and waterways. Its historic Farmstead sits at the confluence of the West and Connecticut Rivers surrounded by wooded hills and rich farmland, cared for by its indigenous inhabitants for countless generations. Our lands comprise a vast, resource-rich, and accessible “common” open free to the public year-round."
All proceeds from Retreat Farm's share of ticket sales will directly benefit the Community Food Project at Retreat Farm. Last year the farm donated over 5,500 pounds of produce to local food shelves and CSA's to provide the community with free healthy food. They also have a food shelf and "Pay What You Can" farmstand at the farm itself. Learn more about the Community Food Project here.
