About this event

Dear Friends!

At long last, we are thrilled to announce the premiere of THE GARDEN, the sequel to our first opera, The Wastelands!

After the initial postponement of our 2020 premiere at the Southern, we will be premiering THE GARDEN at Philadelphia Community Farm September 24th-26th at 7pm all nights.

Content warnings for this show & description include: transphobia, suicide

“The Garden” is an original queer, surrealist opera conceived by Walken Schweigert and created by Open Flame Theatre. The culture of capitalism attempts to control nature in order to utilize it. “The Garden” investigates white-supremacist and colonizer culture’s desire to beautify, manage and control nature (which, of course, includes people) and reveals the horror that ensues when it does. For our all-transgender/gender-non-conforming ensemble, this performance is a ritual act to reclaim all the parts of ourselves we are told are shameful and monstrous. The heart of this performance asks: how do you uproot oppression? This question is a journey; one that begins with looking at how internalized transphobia manifests in us as individuals, and in our communities.

Visit www.openflametheatre.org/the-garden for a more detailed show description.

Out of respect and responsibility to the health of our guests and performers we require all attendees to be vaccinated and wear a mask for the duration.

This is an outdoor performance. There will be limited seating provided, please bring a blanket/chair if you wish/are able. We encourage you to dress for the weather, and wear footwear appropriate for a working farm. The show begins promptly at 7pm, runs approximately 80 minutes, with reception to follow. Please note there are loud sounds and bright lights in the performance. No smoking is allowed, and please do not bring any animals to the farm. For detailed accessibility information, please email openflametheatre@gmail.com.
