Promenade to celebrate the season

By Sunday, Sep 21, 2014 Arts & Entertainment

It’s another tipping point.

Days may be warm. Crickets still rasp their combing call.

But the light is sharper now, as the sun sinks south, and darkness slides in, sooner than it did.

Change is coming, again.

It’s time for the Promenade.

“The Promenade is a celebration of the waning of the season and the promise lying dormant in seeds,” explains Pooja Prema, Rogue Angel of theatrical performance, of her next production Tuesday, September 23, on the grounds of Gedney Farm in New Marlborough.

“This is the time when things die off, but first they go to seed,” she says. “There is underneath autumn, a poetic lust. The Promenade explores that erotic pulse through spoken poetry, song, movement and theatrical vignettes. The audience moves from location to location through the majestic property of Gedney Farm on Route 57, just past the Inn on the Green.”

She advises everyone to dress warmly, because it can get chilly.

“Using the surreal fabric sculptures of New Marlborough artist Cynthia Atwood, and rituals devised in ensemble work, the Promenade also features original percussive music and other surprises typical of Rogue Angel’s multi-dimensional performance work,” she adds.

For more information on the Promenade, directions to Gedney Farm and other Rogue Angel productions, go to RogueAngelTheatre.com.

The Promenade begins at 6 p.m., but she urges people to arrive before 6 p.m. Performance begins promptly.

Rain date is Thursday, September 25.
