The Scientists is Farm Arts Collective’s touring performance. Featured in The New York Times,  it is Play #2 in the company’s decade-long series of climate change plays called DREAM ON THE FARM taking place from 2020-2030.

Directed by Tannis Kowalchuk, the play follows the journey of two deceased American scientists, Carl Sagan (astronomer) and Lynn Margulis (microbiologist) who are reunited in a boxing ring and challenged to compete to “help save life on the planet.” The scientists embark on a competitive fact-finding journey meeting a host of characters along the way.

This fun, all-ages performance incorporates live music, real science, stilt walking to imaginatively explore the world of climate change through two lenses — the microscope and the telescope. Seen at ARTPARK in Lewiston, NY, the Scranton Cultural Center, and Unison Arts in New Paltz, NY.
