12th Night! played to packed houses at The Barn in Bass Harbor on Mount Desert Island during its premiere in August and has since been remounted for audiences of students and members of the public on MDI. It plays in Rockland for one night only.
The Barn Arts Collective (formerly the Mohawk Arts Collective) is a group of artists that create and encourage community through the practice and presentation of live arts events. Based out of The Barn, a performance and rehearsal space in Bass Harbor, Maine, the organization creates new works of performance (theater, music, dance, film), provides residencies for artists making new work, hosts and performs at community events, partners with local non-profit organizations to offer arts and educational programs, and develops and leads workshops for young people in the community.
