Calliope Collective invites you to once again engage with Community and enjoy spectacle and surprise as we gather on Midsummer’s Eve to prepare for the wheel to turn for the Longest Day of the Year!

The spring rains woke the dormant tillers, and bright green shoots sprang from the moist earth and rose like sleepers stretching after a long nap. As spring gave way to summer, the bright green stalks darkened became tan, turned golden brown. The days grew long and hot. Thick towers of swirling black clouds brought rain, and the brown stems glistened in the perpetual twilight that dwelled beneath the canopy. The wheat rose and the ripening heads bent in the prairie wind, a rippling curtain, an endless, undulating sea that stretched to the horizon.” ― Rick Yancey, The Infinite Sea.

We have a brand new story and theatrical community-based performance for you this Summer! Join our wanderers, minstrels, puppets, faeries and more to be transported to a world of enchantment as we create a safe and sacred space to re-examine our relationship to the land through community gathering, story-telling, dance, and circus arts!
