Latta, Tim ME PLURIBUS UNUM History,
Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
In ME PLURIBUS UNUM, we get a hilarious lecture-demonstration cum stump speech by the wanna-be Queen of the United States of America. In her negative attack campaign, she unwittingly makes the case for democracy as we know it, and shows us how lucky we are! As she argues that an absolute monarchy is so much easier than democracy (no questioning necessary, no thinking involved!) she points up the value of civic participation and involvement in our government. Her ironic criticisms of the American system cover the separation of powers, how laws are passed, taxes, and freedom of speech. At the end of her harangue, she demands a vote to end democracy in America so she can achieve her American Dream: to become queen of the greatest nation on earth. In the end she sees the paradox behind her dream. You can’t be queen of the greatest nation on earth if you take away everything that makes it great. It’s not Me pluribus unum, but E pluribus unum: out of many, one. Felicity Jones

Celebrate engaging narratives, animal characters, songs in different languages and home-spun wisdom as one of New England’s favorite storytellers takes us from the heart of the Amazon rainforest to the villages of Africa on the wings of story, rhythm and song. “My family was at your amazing performance of “Join In” yesterday. It’s amazing how you bring together many aspects of art and present them for kids so they use their imagination to “see” all the characters you’re talking, dancing and singing about. Personally, I was very happy with your folktales about the rainforests. I’m from Brazil where we have a rich heritage from Africa and we live in the US where my son was born. We loved to hear “O Pião entrou na roda, ó pião! Roda pião, bambeia pião!”. I used to sing this song myself when I was kid. It was delightful. :~)” ~Marcia, Linden School, Malden, MA

Koeraus, Sol Flamenco y Sol Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Other,
Performing Arts- Dance
Our performance is a wonderful blend of entertainment and education. The artists - in full, colorful, traditional Flamenco costumes - perform and explain the intricacies of Flamenco dance, song, and its rhythms. Participation from the audience is essential.  The objectives of this program are: to show the origins of the flamenco dance, song and music; to demonstrate and relate the relationships between Spain and the Latin American cultures; and present a high quality, entertaining multilingual program. This dynamic program highlights the rhythms and emotions of Flamenco.  Flamenco began in Southern Spain, and we bring to our educational programs the essence of the different culture that influenced Flamenco: Andalusian, Gypsy, North African, Arabic and Judaic.  Unlike other art forms, the traditional dances do not tell stories but instead portray feelings.  The program consists of a series of solos, duets and company numbers.
