Created by the Toronto-based dance-theater group CORPUS, Les Moutons merges reality and fantasy through a captivating and wordless live installation that re-creates a bucolic country scene. Audiences are invited to travel to a strange and often hilarious universe: a carefully studied, surrealistic overview of sheep behavior. The story features Julie, Marie-Louise, Bernadette, and César--three healthy ewes and a young ram. Routine activities, including shearing, feeding, milking, and many more are depicted in a magical performance that twists reality in surprising ways.Shows are at 2 and 5 p.m., with a party between shows with Cowboy Jim & the Hayrollers. There will be refreshments and a real lamb for petting. Kids are admitted free (the show is recommended for children 3 and up); for everyone else, it's $15. Click here to purchase tickets. The Ancram Opera House is located at 1330 County Route 7 in Ancram.
