Inspired by real life stories, Farm is a uniquely rural Australian story about a young girl’s journey from inquisitive, determined girl to a woman prepared to be part of something she loves and believes in.
Two years in the making, Farm is the unique collaboration between the Merredin farming community and Spare Parts Puppet Theatre, developed through a series of residencies that immersed the creative team in the daily lives of the Wheatbelt farming community.
Farm explores themes of change and resilience using dance, puppetry and movement in a highly visual celebration of the lives of the people who live and work on the land.

Reviews & Media
"Complex and incredibly beautiful, Farm tells its story without flinching"
"Farm is a feast for the eyes, and Flockart makes a wonderful transition from the spirited, somewhat defiant young girl to the young lady that carries on in her father’s footsteps"
