PCCD dinner to feature ‘Trees’
HAWLEY, PA — This year, the Pike County Conservation District annual dinner will feature a live performance of “Trees” by NACL Streets, NACL Theatre’s street performance troupe. “Trees” is about the connectivity, communication and co-operative existence in forests. A hike through the forest might feel very different if you imagine a network of communication happening below your boots.
The dinner, which is open to the public, will be held Thursday, November 1, from 6 to 8 p.m. in The Waterfront Room at Silver Birches Resort on Lake Wallenpaupack. The cost is $35 per person for a buffet-style meal and the performance. RSVPs are requested by Thursday, October 25.
The evening begins with a social gathering at 6 p.m., which is cash bar, followed by dinner and welcoming remarks at 6:30 p.m. The performance of “Trees” takes place at 7:30 p.m.
“‘Trees’ is a metaphor for our own humanity as we search for and build communities,” says NACL Streets director Tannis Kowalchuk, an actress and teacher dedicated to creative place-making and community engagement. The original stilt walking performance, which includes drums and accordion, is based on the bestselling book “The Hidden Life of Trees,” by German forester Peter Wohlleben.
