The Games Man, TREVOR The Outdoor Special Other,
Performing Arts- Other
TREVOR delights young and old on arrival, stiltwalking in at nearly 9' tall. We'll begin with some really High Fives just to get 'em jumping right from the start. Then gather around, everyone, it's time for The Aerial Delights: an up-in-the-air, 100% participatory extravaganza of tricks and skills featuring Wind Whistlers, Ribbon Dancers, the color-changing Chameleon Stick, and loads of laughter. And when he sits down and takes of his stilts, the audience is always interested in seeing how the stilts are constructed and answering their questions. The second half is always the games! Either Parachute Play of Active Running Games depending on the crowd and/or your preference. When everyone grabs ahold of the Rainbow Parachute, it's the thrill and excitement of over, under, around, and through! Or we'll just run 'em ragged with a whole flurry of highly active games that everybody wind and everyone has FUN no matter their ability level... even adults! (Check out Project: Ribbon Dancer for a great add-on craft project, too.)

Bromka, Sondra & John The Tale of Tristan & Iseult: An Arthurian Legend Literature- Other,
Music,
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.
