Drums of Japan, Ryu Shu Taiko Taiko Drums: An Intro to Japanese Culture Multicultural- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Performances and workshops allow our performers to share the joy of Taiko with their audiences. “KOKORO” (heart and mind): playing with all our heart and mindful of the long history of Taiko we strive to present an authentic Taiko experience. "KI" (energy and spirit): through Taiko our “Ki” is expressed; and this energy and spirit is shared and received by our audience. “BUNKA” (culture): Taiko is used as an educational tool to teach the music, culture and history of Japan to children in schools and in the community; and to imbue a strong appreciation for cultural tradition and the arts. In our presentation-“The Drums of Noto Hanto”- the audience becomes part of the performance enacting the roles of peasants who drum and dance as demons to scare away invading Samurai. We perform both traditional works and contemporary ones; combining Taiko drumming with Japanese Folk Dance for an exciting presentation that will entertain, enthrall and enrich all that experience the power of the Taiko Drums of Japan!

Crocker, Keith 3-D MOVIES - Comin' at Ya! History,
Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Theater
When Hollywood received competition from the television studios in the 1950's, they pulled out a secret weapon called 3-D. Wearing a pair of blue and red cardboard glasses literally allowed the images on the movie screen to jump right off the screen and right into the audiences lap. 3-D was a process that was far from perfect, but for a brief period of time it was a rage country wide and gave some new excitement to the idea of going to the movies. Recently, 3-D has re-emerged and is again gaining in popularity and giving the couch potato audience a reason to rise out of their seats and come back to the movies. This program is one of the most complete you'll ever see in regards to the history of 3-D films and it includes a memorabilia show including posters and stills, plus a DVD presentation of trailers for films originally shot in 3-D.

Bromka, Sondra & John Of Bards, Bagpipes, & Rhymers: Historic Music Rare and Rustic History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
A salmagundi of period instruments & styles combine for a delightfully unusual concert. In their crossover program 'Bards, Bagpipes, & Rhymers,' musicians Sondra & John Bromka begin by unravelling threads of evocative Medieval music... then weave in and out of it rustic folk traditions, still heard even today in the remote corners of France, Germany, and the British Isles. Side by side, these sounds enrich each other to paint vivid living pictures that evoke the boisterous village festivals, the soulful shepherds’ plaints, and the rich, mystical ballads that connected people of all levels of society. Bells & Motley are known for their uncommon instrumentation, and perform on a diverse collection of historic and folk instruments. For this presentation you’ll hear harp, hurdy gurdy, lute, Medieval fiddle, recorders, crumhorns, various French & English bagpipes, and more. The hurdy gurdy, built by Mr. Bromka, is a sort of Medieval keyboard fiddle enhanced with a resonant drone. Join Sondra & John in their Allegorical musical Garden, rich & resounding for all senses.

Crocker, Keith Propaganda of the Axis - The Other Side of WWII as Seen Through the Eyes of the Enemy History,
Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Here is the third and perhaps best entry on my long running War & Cinema series. This time out we explore WWII as seen through the eyes of the Japanese, Italian and German perspective. We do this by looking at their propaganda; exploring newsreels, cartoons, and various other forms of "entertainment" designed to keep their public actively involved in the war effort, and of course extolling the virtues of their causes. Whether it be the "Die for your Country" cries of the Japanese, or the "inspire your nation into unity that will obey" slogan of Italian Fascism, or the xenophobic warnings of "imperialist invaders ruining the purity of race" extolled by the Germans, this program is the ultimate examination of what our enemies were thinking during WWII.
$101- $200
