Residency at The Celebration Barn Sept 27- Oct 7 2011

Strong Coffee Stage had an amazing and inspiring week and a half residency at The Celebration Barn in South Paris Maine! It was a great experience to be nestled in the country side of Maine and creating a brand new solo show! The Celebration Barn gave us good energy to dive into our work and dig deep into our souls!

We were able to take this lovely residency due mostly to the fact that I received a grant from The Arts Endowment of The Vermont Community Foundation to begin work on a solo show! YAY!
Thank You Vermont Community Foundation!

While in Maine not only did we take time for hikes and walks in the luscious woods and fields but we also visited the small town of South paris where we often had to take time for a mocha or a latte at Cafe Nomad! I highly recommend them! They have awesome food and they sell wine and beer too! You gotta go early though because they close at 4pm sharp!

We also got the opportunity to work with Davis Robinson Professor of the Theatre Dept at Bowdoin College and Artistic Director of Beau Jest Moving Theatre, an innovative and inspiring Physical Theatre Company based in Boston Mass.

We taught a Clown and Partner Acrobatics class at Bowdoin College to the students in the theatre dept. It was a wonderful experience to share our skills with these very willing and capable students.
I have included some fun photos of our trip to Maine and our residency at The Barn! Thanks so much! We will be back next year or sooner!
