DANCES FROM LESVOS and ASIA MINOR : 12 days in the Aegean sea

From Aeolida to Ionia… from Plomari to Phocaea !

Asia Minor’s traditions are, of course, a constitutive element of today’s Greece as a whole, but in the North Aegean, and especially on Lesvos, these traditions are still part of people’s daily life and mentality, as is shown by their language, music, dances, and even their literature. That’s why Lesvos is said to be part and parcel of Asia Minor.

Based for the second year running in Plomari, we’ll continue our journey on the steps of dance and music. The town of Plomari, on the southern green slopes of mount Olymbos, keeps alive numerous traditions. The difficult winding road which leads to it keeps it isolated, still, from the rest of the island. These traditions are to be seen in the culture of the olive tree, the production of olive oil and ouzo, but also in the language – the characteristic local dialect –, in the music and the songs – the famous Plomari’s satirical distichs –, and of course in the dances.

This year, continuing last year’s experience, we’ll spend part of our program in the historical Asia Minor, on the shores of today’s Turkey. We’ll have as our base the ancient Phocea, a peaceful town on the Aegean seashore, the former home town of Marseilles’ Greeks, midway between Aeolida and Ionia. In music and in dancing, but also in literature, we’ll look for Asia Minor’s memories and traditions so as to relive them from within.

At each stopping place, a whole word will come to life :

Mytilene, Ayvalik, Pergamos, Phocaea, Smyrna, Erythrea, Plomari, Sigri, Antissa, Skalohori,...

memory and traditions : Dances, music, literature, history, sightseeing trips
This Second Meeting will begin Saturday morning, July 4, in Mytilene-town, and end in Plomari, Wednesday, July 15, at 1 p.m.
We’ll spend six days with Phocaea (Eski Foça in Turkey) as our base, and six days on Lesvos Island (Greece) with Plomari as our base !

The program will include daily dance classes, taught by specialists in Asia Minor dancing, and will be enriched by numerous trips and visits.
The price of 880€ includes:
o 11 nights (breakfast included)
o 11 meals (lunch or dinner, depending on the schedule of the day)
o Dance lessons (5 hours a day) with Greek and Turkish instructors
o Literature and history lectures
o Dance and music in the evenings with local orchestras
o Coach at our disposal while in Turkey
o Admittance to archeological sites and museums
o Boat trip to and from Turkey

Add 160 € to the above price if you prefer a room by yourself.
For people who wish to register, but without attending the dance classes, the price will be 720 euros

This is the most beautiful and clean ECO region in Macedonia. Accommodation is much better then hotel "Biser" in Struga, and the neighborhood is authentic Village style. Gypsy quart is very close to the hotel, so it will be a lot of dancing and singing all the time. Big open market is 0.5 mile from the hotel. For the dancers- finally..... we have: WOOD FLOOR - ORIGINAL VILLAGE STYLE WOOD... It will be few more local dance teachers for traditional village style. Of course every night will be live music with Stefce Stojkovski, Bajsa Arifovska, Igor Dimovski, Ratko Zlatanovski, Goran and Adrijana Alachki and more local brass& zurla bands like surprise...

Belgium, Sweden,Norway, Hungary,Australia, Brazil and Japan. (Masaru Nagae from Japan is first on the list for the next seminar)... The number of participants is LIMITED on 40 people maximum. So , one good thing is- THE HOTEL WILL BE ONLY FOR US,we will not disturb anybody... Capacity of the hotel is around 50 people... but much comfortably is number of 40 people.The nights in Berovo is very cold,so in the middle of the restourant we have big village style fire place.
It will be a lot of work for you next year..I can tell you... in the middle of the restaurant is old loom (wear's frame, or jenny or weaving mill) for you and all the participants of my seminar. All the time during our seminar two old women in national costumes from Maleshevo region will work(singing old traditional songs) on this old fashion "machine" making traditional costumes... Sounds GOOD?
It will be nice to start to think about next "Macedonian Pearl Folk-Seminar 2009" from now , making reservations...
Also I will show you my village " Vladimirovo" included roast lamb and home made bread....(3 miles from the Hotel).... In the free time, Bajsa will show us a lot of things in Gypsy (Roma ) neighborhood (relatives,musician's, dancers)... It will be picnic on sheepfold in the mountain... and a lot of surprises...

World Festival of Folklore - Schoten

In 1959 members of a folklore group and the local tourist association founded The World Festival of Folklore in Schoten in order to promote folk art by presenting it to the public in a beautiful setting, being the historical castle and its surroundings.

The festival takes place every year from Friday before through Friday after the second Sunday in July. Eight to 10 high quality foreign dance ensembles present their program to an audience totalling 30 to 35.000.

It is an amateur festival and therefore meant in the first place to non-professional folk art groups of a high artistic standard. For the sake of preservation the organisers prefer authentic folklore, but they accept adaptation to the stage.

The aim of the organisers is not only to preserve the cultural heritage but also to allow people all over the world to learn to know each other better. Therefore much time is reserved for playing music, dancing together, making excursions, demonstrating handicrafts and playing games.

CHILDREN'S FOLK CAMP "ONCE UPON A TIME..."

OUR AIMS

Because technology has made man arrogant and egocentric.
Because we think that environmental education does not work when man face environment authoritatively.
Because the "Nature-Animals-Man" triptych must retain a balance
Because man can never realize the fact that man and environment are interdependent by means of words but by experience and actions. This is the reason why we created "Once upon a time"
At its live folklore workshops you will see nature, man, animals in an interdependent harmonic and balanced relationship.
At "Once upon a time" you will see no dead exhibition areas.
You will experience live tradition, a fairytale-like reality, a game of tradition and life, of nature, man, animals, in as ideal relationship.
