Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Dance
Bells & Motley's musical storytelling performance is a Greek classic concerning the value of Dreaming, Digging In, and Doing! We all understand how our lives' pressing labors hang in a balance with the wonders of artistry and expression, through colors and sounds and dances. In our telling, we are confident that all will appreciate the carefully drawn moral concerning the value of both work & play. As we weave the tale through Ant and Grasshopper’s year in four episodes, each scene begins with the appropriate movement of Vivaldi's 'Four Seasons' evocatively performed by the artists on harp, nyckelharpa, tromba marina, and winds. The action and mystique of the tale are further highlighted by the audiences’ contributions on medieval fiddles (researched and built by the artists themselves), percussion, and dancing. At the end of our maiden performance of this show, a young fellow excitedly asked: 'Where will we all be performing this next?' Exploratory Expressions by audience+artists, before the performance: -The Grasshopper's Fiddling Troupe - The Ant's Percussion Troupe - The Butterfly Dancers And now, Dear Audience, Places!! Let the story begin as together we play and sing the 15th c. song of 'El Grillo' the Cricket!

Rosenberg, Paul Colonial Dance History,
Multicultural- Other,
Music
What did people do for fun in the Colonial era? They sang, made their own music, and danced! Are you looking for a way to bring the Colonial era to life? Participants will learn firsthand how people socialized and hear anecdotes from American history. Encourage them to come in costume from clothing they already have – or make their own. Colonial New York and New England was a crossroads of trade, commerce and culture, influenced by Dutch, French, English, African and Native American among many other peoples and traditions. “Multicultural” is not a new concept. The audience will connect with centuries-old traditions and participate in the traditional house party dances as generations of Americans have done – by dancing! Squares, contras and circle dances were brought to American from Europe and Africa. The program includes a sit-down period to talk about the dancing, music, instruments, and cultures. We play tunes, sing songs, and teach about the origins of traditional folk instruments including the fiddle, gourd banjo, mandolin, penny whistle, recorder, and more.
