Simone Poltronieri/Boston Camerata Anne Azéma, artistic director of the Boston Camerata. Anne Azéma led her first concert as artistic director of the Boston Camerata in November of 2008. It was around the time of the presidential election, and Azéma decided to ring in her tenure with a concert of early American music centered on themes of hope and renewal — appropriate to her taking on the new post, surely, but perhaps also a nod to the longing for a fresh start that was on many Americans’ minds at the time.Eight years later, another Camerata season opener is at hand, as is another election. The country’s mood, though, is quite different, and so is the tenor of the musical offerings. “City of Fools,” Saturday’s program, reaches back to t...

Depuis le début du XIIIe siècle, la Ville verse chaque automne à sa reine un loyer sous forme d’une serpe, une hache, des fers à cheval et des clous. La location correspond à des terrains que personne ne sait plus situer. C’est une drôle de tradition vieille d’un peu plus de huit siècles que l’Angleterre vient de perpétuer. Comme chaque année depuis 1211, la Ville a payé à la Reine son loyer annuel, raconte un blog britannique, Atlas Obscura, repris par Slate. Et le moins que l’on puisse dire c’est qu’il est plutôt original: plutôt que des espèces sonnantes et trébuchantes, Barbara Janet Fontaine, la «Queen’s Remembrancer» (celle qui est chargée de collecter tout ce qui est dû à la Couronne d’Angleterre), s’est vu remettre, au début du m...

Since the beginning of the 13th century, the city pays each fall to his Queen a rent in the form of a sickle, axe, iron horse and nails. The location corresponds to courses that nobody knows more locate. It's a funny old tradition of a little more than eight centuries England comes to perpetuate. As each year since 1211, the city has paid his annual rent Queen, tells a British blog, Atlas Obscura, taken over by Slate. And the least we can say is that it is rather unusual: rather than some cold hard cash, Barbara Janet fountain, the 'Queen's Remembrancer"(the one who is responsible for collecting all that is owed to the Crown of England), has been given, at the beginning of the m...

Her memories of working at Domtar are relatively fresh — the mill closed 10 years ago. And a reunion was held just last month. But walking into the Cornwall Community Museum on Wednesday, into its launch of the new Toronto Paper/Howard Smith/Domtar paper mill exhibit, well, it stirred up some of those old feelings again for Mitch Fobert-Irving. “It’s beautiful,” said Forbert-Irving, who worked at Domtar for almost 18 years and was chair of the committee for the recent reunion. “It’s great memories . . . what a part of Cornwall, Domtar was. (Former employees) are like family.” Fobert-Irving said she’d be taking her 88-year-old dad Joe Forbert — a machine tender for most of his 44 years at the mill — to the exhibit, and the museum hopes ma...

It favours ekaharya abhinaya , where one dancer plays multiple roles without a change of costume.Group work then necessitates careful orchestration, and the temptation to multiply the solo body without viewing it as a unit in the larger space of the group can be strong. In inviting a group of established practitioners to present an evening-length work with their companies, the National Centre for Performing Art (NCPA)’s Nakshatra Dance Festival effectively casts the spotlight on group work in classical dance.Swapn...

By Akio Oikawa / Yomiuri Shimbun Staff WriterSamurai warriors’ protective gear, called katchu in Japanese, is not only part of an old Japanese tradition but also the fruit of skilled craftsmanship. Katchu includes yoroi (body armor), kabuto (helmet) and other protective wear. It can be fun to view various katchu items on display at museums. Life-size yoroi and kabuto can be made using cardboard and other materials that are easy to obtain. The finished works look very realistic if meticulously assembled. You can even make some armor to wear yourself if you want to feel the spirit of the samurai during the Sengoku warring states period from the late 15th century to the late 16th century. Japanese armor is distinctive in appearance and deta...
