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.
CREDITS–Director Tannis Kowalchuk, dramaturg and co-director Mimi McGurl, music by Rima Fand, Doug Rogers, Melissa Bell, Annie Hat. Performances by Pam Arnold, Melissa Bell, Jess Beveridge, Michael Chojnicki, Gregg Erickson, Hudson Williams-Eynon, Ginny Hack, Annie Hat, Tannis Kowalchuk, John Roth. Costumes by Sue Currier.

Ezell: Ballad of a Land Man is an environmental, cultural and spiritual parable derived from living in the foothills of Appalachia, one man among many seeking to make sense of the time, place and condition in which we live. In the story, Ezell’s choices, traumas and ancestors intersect with themes of domination and resilience as he seeks to take advantage of an anticipated fracking boom and the opportunity to reconnect with the people and land of his raising.
