Florez, Karla Tamarindo Multicultural- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Tamarindo is a children's book adapted to be performed as a story telling and dance form. It shows how boys and girls from El Canal del Dique region in the Carribean coast of Colombia love to paint their bodies with black paint as a remembrance of the period in slavery and the freedom from it. A special characteristic in this story is the use of facial gestures. I retell the story by telling of a boy whom is loved throughout the town and enjoy dancing in despite of living in reduced circumstances. Values like rejoice, love and courage are shown in this story while dancing and keeping the contagious rhythm of Danza negra.

DiLorenzo, Kris Acting Shakespeare in One Easy Lesson Performing Arts- Theater
Open to teens, too, this is a fun way for even non-actors to act: using the original method of the actors in Shakespeare’s troupe: they had no rehearsals and had only their own lines, not the whole script. The secret: Shakespeare's acting instructions are "coded" into the text, through devices like capital letters, strange spellings, odd punctuation, and even passages that make no sense. All you have to do to act the lines is be able to read them, and follow Kris's very simple instructions. No experience or British accents necessary!

merwin, chris Kikyo Genso-Japanese music and dance Multicultural- Other,

Kikyo Genso (beautiful illusion in Japanese) is a one of a kind duo consisting of Kishiko Hasegawa and Chris Merwin. Kishiko studied the ancient Noh theater dance and singing as a child in Japan and Chris Merwin has immersed himself in the esoteric music of the bamboo shakuhachi flute both in Japan and at home. Together they enchant audiences with a marriage of the two art forms that are not paired together in the traditional arts world of Japan. The program features elegant dance based on Noh dance accompanied by Zen Buddhist and classical music, as well as folk dances with the words sung in Japanese. The performers are authentically costumed in kimonos and cultural and historical background is given on all aspects of the performance. This show is the only one of it's kind anywhere and is as entertaining as it is educational.
