WHAT IS PORCH SONG?

story//

On a summer evening in 2017, Nadia Quinn & Boykin Curry were sitting outside Boykin's bay-front Bellport home when the idea sprung to do "a play on the porch". Nadia brought Emily Young on board-- her long time pal and Broadway dressing-roommate, and PORCH SONG was born. In July of 2018, the pilot production took place on Boykin's porch- inspired by the house itself, and the enchanting property surrounding, PORCH SONG became a medley of classic and familiar scenes and songs celebrating themes of home, family, love, human-nature, and summertime, After the success of the first year's show, the team was approached by Isabella Rossellini, whose neighboring farm seemed the perfect setting for the second installment of the experiment.

FIELD & FOREST was commissioned and presented, along with a remount of PORCH SONG, in late June/early July 2019. FIELD & FOREST became a compilation of classic & familiar music and text inspired by Isabella's idyllic farm, day/night, sun/moon, & land/sky.

The Porch Song movement aims to bring communities together through genuinely entertaining, location-inspired performances

that encourage presence, mindfulness,

and inspire joy.
