June 3 & 4
1 - 9pm, parade starts at 7pm
Double Edge’s Ashfield Town Spectacle and Culture Fair explores how active participation defines the intersection of art, culture and democracy. Grown directly from the theatre’s questions about the roots of identity, the Town Spectacle extends this search to include the whole community through a kaleidoscope of history, art, and spectacle. This performance will not take place in a theatre—the territories of the town will be the stage map—and the ensemble will be joined by all walks of the Ashfield, Hilltown, and western MA community.
The event is free and open to the public, and spectators will be free to wander from venue to venue, with a map and schedule provided upon entry. The Spectacle will run from 1pm-9pm both days, culminating in a large parade/procession down Main Street at 7 pm, leading to a finale at the Ashfield Lake.
