WE ARE made up of MANY COLLABORATORS WHO HAVE PARADED OUR WAY THROUGH FIELDS, STREETS, AND HEARTS OVER MANY YEARS. THIS IS THE AMOEBA.
The 2016 Cabaret was brought to you by:
Chelsea Granger is an illustrator, painter, curator, and quilter. She makes tiny art and giant art, and art on posters, on plywood, on walls, with fabric. She loves the library, and flowers when they are dying.
Anne Louise Burdett is a dancer, choreographer, agricultural educator, and bona fide witchy potion maker.
Ruth Lichtman is a director, filmmaker, painter, and puppeteer with a love of abstract embroidery.
Gabe Harrell is a co-founder of The Rural Academy Theater, sculptor, writer, printing press whiz, cheese maker and all around handy pants.
Sophie Wood is a sequin lover, a poet, and a clown. She is the secretary, bus conductor, and cheerleading creative curator of The Royal Frog Ballet, and she cannot help it as she is an oldest child.

Molly Greene is a print-maker, sculptor, lantern builder, landscape architect, and all around smarty pants. She is currently exploring science fiction and feminism.
Mike Gundlach is an enthusiastic food conceptualist, print maker, pencil wielder for a better world, drummer, and all around wise guy.
Want to know more about the beautiful photography on our website? That's the work of the remarkable Candace Hope.
Julia Read is a fiddler-singer-song-writing-crooner and hooter. She tours the country as a rock and roll star sometimes and as a Georgian choir member other days.
Jazer Giles is a composer, accordion squeezer, piano dazzler, singer, mobile sculptor, projectionist and mathematician. He moonlights as an elbow patched professor by day.
Shea Witzo is a force to be reckoned with. Social justice worker, power tool operator not to mention singer, dancer, maker, baker, painter, sculptor, and human loudspeaker.
And lastly, our volunteers, the many many many unnamed hands and bodies that show up to help us pull all this magic off!
Like geese, COLLABORATORS FLY away to other projects, and return again
Circling, circling, we all RUN in the same circles:
Kailie Larkin cooks like a madwoman, teaches youth theater, clowns, writes, and is a hearty advocate for the Delicious Movement Movement. She is currently turning to goo in her creative chrysallis.
Hazel Wood is a stone carver, ceramicist, print maker, and dancer. Artistically coerced at a young age by her sister, she can hit a cue in her sleep.
Maryann Collela is a dancer, mask maker stilt walker, radical puppeteer musician, and currently training as a midwife. TheBadlingMenagerie
Lily Gold is a dancer, choreographer, and large scale visual artist. She paints, sculpts, and makes experimental dance videos.
Lea Chiara is a soulful crooner and songwriter, painter, lantern builder, and ethereal mask maker.
Vanessa Kerby and Mia Valentini of The Dire Honeys grace our shows with their songs, sculptures, and masks.
Sarah Blackwell is a ceramicist, print-maker, and painter. She makes one mean cup of coffee and she means business.
Katie Richardson is a sculptor and youth arts activist. She can weld and melt, twist and turn all sorts of unimaginably hard materials.
Audrey Kiely is an improviser, a singer, a mover and a butcher. She's always searching for new old ways to cook things.
Tamsin Flanders is a beloved granny.
Some are born clown, some achieve clown, and some, like Elizabeth Quilter, have clown thrust upon them. A penchant for dandyism, Shakespeare, and wit, one can usually find her singing, tap dancing, or making visual art.
Laurel Butler is a dance theater educator and activist by day, glitter bomb by night as the front lady of Cassandra.
Matt Lorenz makes music, sculpture, and very rarely, his bed. He is a tinkerer, a song writer and a strummer.
Caity Johnson is a recipient of the Joli Goodfellow Fellowship, which nobody can deny. She is a dancer, choreographer and wears gold lame like a true artist.
Ewen Wright is a film maker, stand up comedian and clown. He takes this very seriously.
Aiyana Masla is a choreographer, dancer, theater maker, and nature educator. She is a whiz at learning anything at all at the last minute.
