Beyond your senses lie unimagined wonders…”


 Northward Spins the Needle:

an adaptation of the Norse folktale,
East of the Sun, West of the Moon


 How far might you go…for love…for the promise to become Free? 


Journey north to where the uses of magic are unveiled in a storied landscape, where enchantment is currency, and the natural world draws the map for revelations. 


The bear said to her, “Hold tight by my shaggy coat, then there’s nothing to fear.”


Written and Directed by Aly Perry

Musical Direction by Stacy Chadwell

BORDERLANDS is a Treewild production

Tickets cost $20 for adults and $10 for children under 12. Tickets are for a specific time slot, with groups leaving every ten minutes.

The mile-long trail begins and ends in the woods by the Coach Barn. Please be aware that it takes ten minutes from the entrance of the Farm to drive to the Coach Barn.

Please, no dogs! Shelburne Farms is a dog-free facility.

Along the route there are performances, some of which involve your participation. Borderlands opens the magic and mystery of the natural world to all ages. (Strollers are not appropriate, young children should walk or be carried.)

BORDERLANDS will be held on Saturday afternoons October 8, 15th and 22nd. If the weather is too miserable to walk, we will postpone to the following Sunday.
