ARTFARM’s Terpsichore: The Women’s Movement premieres June 14 & 15 in Middletown


ARTFARM's Terpsichore: The Women's Movement is an explosive new work that delves into what it is to be a woman, from the most dark and painful to the most ecstatic- with some stops in between. It will premiere at Oddfellows Playhouse in Middletown on June 14 & 15 at 8 pm.

Developed in the studio, in community and in interviews, this workshop production journeys through a psycho-emotional landscape of movement, text and sound. In the tradition of Ruby Dee’s “Podansical”, this intergenerational, non-linear exploration fosters provocative thought and an opportunity for both personal and community reflection. Terpsichore: The Women’s Movement is intended for mature audiences, for women, and for anyone who has ever known or loved a woman.

ARTFARM has been producing original work and classic theater in central Connecticut since 2001. The company is known for its physical style, visual richness, evocative use of sound and music, and its provocative explorations of pressing issues like race, sex, inequity, and the environment. ARTFARM cultivates high-quality theater with a commitment to simple living, environmental sustainability and social justice.
