The 7th annual Mount Tremper Arts Summer Festival is up and running through August 23rd featuring groundbreaking music events, visceral dance works and boundary-pushing theater. The festival showcases risk-taking work, but also fosters an environment where audiences and artists can come together to form a community that values dialogue and experimentation.
The festivals remaining events this year include four world premieres!
