The Woodland Project, centered on Julia Adam’s latest choreographic work The Mycelial Nature of Things, was the followup to the successful BoatHouse Project presented July 2014. Set to a diverse score including songs by RadioHead and original composition by long time collaborator Matthew Pierce the event took place in a magical wooded grove nestled against the hills of RockRose Ranch in the charming town of Nicasio in West Marin County.
In the tradition of Julia Adam Dance the evening began with a walk in the woods to a clearing amidst a canopy of trees where local food and drink were combined in a remote kitchen led by Jay Holecek, Seth Peterson and Guido Frosini in a festive farm-to-table feast. Once satiated we retired to the grove with cups of sipping chocolate and bone broth to be moved by dance.
Once again Julia assembled a team of world class artists. Returning Dancers Travis Bradley, Rachel Hewer, Lucius Kirst, Carly Wheaton, Jane Hope Rehm and Oliver Halkowich were joined by Cecily Kuhner and John Speed Orr in this unforgettable once a year event.
