Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium. ... read less

Myth teller and author Dr. Martin Shaw claims the stories we need arrived, right on time, about five thousand years ago. They were provocative, mysterious, wild and deep. They insisted on a relationship between people and place, animal and dream.So the myths are here, but do we still have the capacity to behold them? In Celtic and Mediterranean culture there was an insistence that when we entered our bodies - the bone-house - we immediately fell into amnesia about the story we had signed up to live. The big stories of a culture were there to remind the soul about it’s particular directive. What happens when we can’t hear their disclosures?To behold a tale is for it to settle deep in your body. A deep event that requires stewarding and time. The evening will be about developing the home-making skills to make such a place for story.Celebrating the release of Martins new book; “Snowy Tower: Parzival and the Wet, Black Branch of Language”, he also will be talking about the works relationship to the land, the feminine and the archaic role of the storyteller. ... read less

Young Englishman Lord Wilson is travelling through Egypt when a powerful storm breaks out. He is forced to take shelter in the nearest pyramid, where the daughter of one of Egypt’s most powerful pharaohs lies entombed. Lord Wilson falls asleep and begins to dream that the princess has come to life.The plot of this lavish production is loosely based on Théophile Gauthier’s novel Le Roman de la Momie. French choreographer Pierre Lacotte was exclusively commissioned in 2000 by the Bolshoi Theatre to resurrect Marius Petipa’s mighty Egyptian fresco, and he succeeded brilliantly in giving new life to this forgotten masterpiece. With its exotic setting, impressive parades, spectacular variations and crowd scenes, this grand 19th-century Orientalist fantasy is one of the most remarkable productions in the Bolshoi’s repertoire. The main roles are here danced by Bolshoi principals Svetlana Zakharova, Nina Kaptsova and Ruslan Skvortsov.(Ballet recorded live on November 25th, 2012) ... read less
