Our youth will join Wilson’s Fist and Heel Performance Group for daily rehearsals and will work with artist-in-residence Arianne King Comer to design and dye their costumes. Afternoons will be spent exploring the natural world at Lynden and interpreting it through site-specific artmaking.

We wrap up a full week with a final performance at Lynden will take place on Saturday, July 28th.
