Crocker, Keith SPAGHETTI WESTERNS - How Europe Changed the Face of Western Cinema Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Other,
Visual Arts- Other
This seminar explores how Italian filmmakers took an American genre of film-making and completely reshaped it giving the world a very different view of the old west. The Good, The Bad and the Ugly blurred the definition of good and evil. We will cover the work of Sergio Leone as well as explore the countless spin-offs as done by the Spanish, Germans, Mexicans and others. A delicious selection of DVD clips punctuate the footage used to draw examples. The casual cinema viewer will broaden their outlook and appreciate other film genres via this presentation. *NOTE* Due to the nature of the subject matter, I do insist this seminar be classified for "Adults". Westerns by nature can be violent, so don't aim this program at children or pre-teens. It is meant for "Adults". Thank you!

Performing Arts- Puppetry,
Visual Arts- Other
With a cast of colorful characters and deft sleight-of-hand, master puppeteer Patrick Wadden brings to life Homer's ancient epic of Odysseus and his trouble-fraught journey home from the Trojan War. A voyage of two-weeks turns into ten years as capricious gods and wayward mortals thwart the Hero’s passage across the 'wine-dark sea'. The infamous one-eyed Cyclops, the alluring Sirens, six-headed Skylla, and the terrible whirlpool of Charybdis are but a few of the legendary monsters in this timeless adventure story. Through courage, cleverness and determination Odysseus triumphs over these trials and eventually is reunited with his family. Tales From the Odyssey is designed to introduce young audiences (ages 7 & up) and their families to one of the foundational stories of western literature. The visual elements in this poetic presentation are inspired by ancient Greek painted ceramics. Available June -December 2015, the show is well-suited for public libraries and small community venues. In fact, it's a perfect fit for the 2015 Summer Reading Theme: Every Hero Has A Story.

Field, Barb Balloon Art! Performing Arts- Clowning,
Visual Arts- Other
BJ and Company will custom design the right program for your needs. We have worked extensively with children and families and performed hundreds of shows. BJ will encourage the participants to have fun while they use their own creative ideas to design unique balloon sculptures. She will show them how to prepare the balloons and a few different ways to twist them. Then they will need to think and plan ahead. This involves a little bit of painless, hands-on deliberating about dividing and fractions … how much balloon do I have left to twist how many legs??? Although some participants may want to learn how to make a standard balloon dog, BJ prefers to encourage them be creative on their own and see what they can design. We can also add on a brief BALLOON MAGIC SHOW or just perform the show with no hands-on twisting by the audience. THIS PROGRAM IS BEST SUITED FOR SECOND GRADE TO ADULTS. www.bjandcompany.com 607-432-0988
