Photos: SPACE on Ryder Farm Roving Dinner
Last Saturday, SPACE on Ryder Farm, the nonprofit artist residency program located on the Westchester-Putnam border, hosted its ‘Roving Dinner.’ Considered a signature event for SPACE, the Roving Dinner provides community members an opportunity to experience the artistic work that SPACE’s residents produce during their time at the farm while enjoying an intimate farm-to-table dinner with the artists.
Over the span of five hours, Roving Dinner guests traveled to various locations around Ryder Farm. At each location, a dinner course prepared by SPACE’s culinary team was paired with excerpts of plays performed by members of SPACE’s Working Farm writers group. The Working Farm is made up of five playwrights and composer/lyricists who reside at Ryder Farm over five nonconsecutive weeks to nurture and inspire the creation of a new work for the theater.
Current and former SPACE residents who performed in the Roving Dinner include playwrights and composers Emily Gardner Xu Hall, Isaac Gómez, Kareem M. Lucas, Caroline V. McGraw, Sanaz Toossi, Noelle Viñas and Ray Yamanouchi.
