Bromka, Sondra & John The Tale of Tristan & Iseult: An Arthurian Legend Literature- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
This most famous of all classic love stories was originally set in Celtic antiquity, and an important component of the Arthurian legends. In the 12th century, the tale was already 600 years old when it captured the imagination of Medieval France’s famous storyteller-poet-musicians, the troubadours. The powerful story continued its long journey through the ages... inspiring many works in turn, including Shakespeare (Romeo & Juliet). Bells & Motley present a telling that is authentic, yet lively, accessible, highly charged, and mysterious - full of all of the original symbolism, intrigue, and purpose. In ancient bardic style, it features a simple setting, rich language, and complex emotions evoked through the power of music. Rare historic instruments include the Medieval keyed fiddle, low-voiced recorders, ancient gut-strung bray harp, and Celtic harp. Musical selections include the same historic pieces that were part of Medieval tellings, as inspired by this enduring tale.

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.
