In capoeira we had a week of festival and training in 2012. Lagosta came all the way from Aachen in Germany and Joe Seitz (Marola) with his assistant Ailton from Northampton.
In 2013 we had a master class with mestre Virgulino, geared more to the intermediate student.
We now have regular classes for beginners with Celestine Ngam. Mestre Virgulino will also come with his students for the opening of a show of Brazilian popular culture at the International Museum for Folk Art on November 17 and 18. There will be a capoeira performance and a maculele dance.
If you are specifically interested in African drum and dance, go directly to Soriba's website. He is planning lots of cool stuff these days, including a four week camp in Guinea/Africa.
For next year, Christy in thinking of calling together a symposium of artists who have done public art, want to talk about it and would give some presentations to the public. More to come...
Some of the local events happen in the dance studio at our house on Kathryn Street. It is a residential area and we are working with the neighbors to make sure everyone is happy. The metal work and ceramics workshops are based at our studios on Industrial Road.
