The Man Who Planted Trees Exchange Artists Austin TX This internationally beloved short story by French author Jean Giono is a beautiful allegorical tale of each individual’s responsibility to be a steward of our natural resources. Set in Provençe between 1913 and 1947, the story follows a single man who plants one hundred acorns every day for more than thirty years. He restores a desolate landscape through his labor, a gentle reminder that our lives and our livelihoods are in direct connection with the earth.

This adaptation by The Exchange Artists brings the simple tale to life with an immersive play that utilizes dance, text in both French and English, an original score by Rohan Joseph, illustration by Katie Rose Pipkin, and the natural beauty of Sparky Park.
