IN'Tents: A Conservation Comedy!

IN'Tents A Conservation Comedy

Performing in the 2014 Green Show Thursday, October 2 and Saturday, October 4.

This is their first season in the OSF Green Show.

Outrageously Hilarious Physical Comedy, Camping Clowns Mis-adventure's, Conservation/Camping tips.

IN'Tents is a highly entertaining physical comedy for family audiences that teaches camping safety and highlights the importance of nature conservation. IN'Tents follows the clown-esque camping misadventures of an enthusiastic, but bumbling scout intern and his park ranger in command. Together, they embark on a beautiful and adventurous journey into the wilderness, until things get "IN’TENTS" and the “STAKES” get raised.

IN'Tents is a project co-created by an international artistic team from three different countries:

Meghan Frank (Founding Artistic Director) from the USA,
Janessa Johnsrude (Producing Artistic Director) From Canada, and
Pratik Motwani (Founding Member/Managing Director) from India.

IN'Tents continues to actively seek guest artists and collaborators from across the globe sharing the same vision of community engagement and artistic vocabulary.

This year, the IN'Tents team feels extremely fortunate in working with Guest Artist/Collaborator Ryan Musil.

This year, the IN'Tents team is eagerly looking forward to perform at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon as a part of their Green Show.

IN'Tents was invited to perform at Dell'Arte International in Blue Lake, California as a part of the annual summer Mad River Festival. For more information about the Mad River Festival click here.
