Laura Fisher recalls the terrific launch event for ‘An artist, a farmer and a scientist walk into a bar…’
AN ARTIST, A FARMER AND A SCIENTIST WALK INTO A BAR… [A SERIOUS COMEDY IN ONE ACT]
“In every true artist, or farmer, or scientist there is a spark, as precious as that first tiny spark with which life itself began…” Louis Bromfield, 1951
Sparks flew last year when Rick Hutton from The Living Classroom in Bingara proposed to stage a play inspired by KSCA’s AFS Project at Bingara’s dazzling Roxy Theatre. Rick’s vision was to use theatre to introduce the project to the community in the New England region of NSW.
What a rollicking good idea we said!
We are delighted to announce that this spark ignited some very creative work. In just a few weeks, the North West Theatre Company will host the launch dinner for our project. Their production will be complemented by a locavore’s feast fit for carnivore and herbivore alike. Dinner and a show!
KSCA wild foods guru Diego Bonetto will work with stylist Marnie Fox, local caterers Friends of Touriandi, and farmer Glenn Morris of Figtree Organic Farms to feed the multitudes. Several of the AFS Project artists will be there to share their brand new collaborative projects with the audience. We can’t wait! Come join us – tickets are limited!
When: 7.00pm, Saturday 5th May 2018.
How much: $50 per person for “dinner and a show”. BYO Drinks.

Members of KSCA were invited to contribute to the Hyper Rural: the end of Urbanism? Symposium at Manchester Metropolitan University in November 2017. We prepared this video, which discusses KSCA's approach to art, as well as the 'Sugar vs. the Reef?' project which is led by KSCA members Lucas Ihlein and Kim Williams.
