First Friday, April 6th at 7pm the Mariposa Museum will welcome the Hellenic Dance Troupe from St. Philip Greek Orthodox Church in Nashua. Under the instruction of Maria Donati and Marisa Donati the troupe will perform traditional dances; the lively Koftos, typical of the areas of Thessaly, Epirus and Central Greece; the slow movements of the Karagouna and the Tsamiko from the rural areas of central Greece and Peloponnese; the Tik distinctive in its music and dance from Pontos; and the ever popular Kalamatiano. loved by all Greek-Americans.

Dances will be performed by Eleni Philipon, Alexia Philipon, Athena LaJeunesse and Christina Katsioulis, in costumes that originate from the Epirus region, west Macedonia and mountaineer Greece. The costumes emphasize modesty and elegant beauty in the stitchery and woven fabric. According to Maria Donati the goal of the dance troupe is to keep the Greek culture alive by sharing the tradition of Greek dance as it is passed from generation to generation. By popular demand the photos of children by Stan Fry will remain in the Mariposa's gallery through April.

Play: Almost Maine

Time: 7:00 pm
Place: New England Youth Theater, 100 Flat St., Brattleboro, VT (about 18 miles from Keene)
Price: $8 students/$10 adults
Ages: All

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend — almost — in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.
This romantic comedy is as unpredictable as falling in love. It aims for the heart by way of your funny bone and the magical realism settles crisply as a frost on the landscape of these rural love stories.

How did sushi become a global cuisine?

What began as a simple but elegant food sold by Tokyo street vendors has become a worldwide phenomenon in the past 30 years. Sushi: The Global Catch (75 mins.) (Special Jury Award Winner, 2011 Seattle International Film Festival) is a feature-length documentary shot in five nations that explores the tradition, growth and future of this popular cuisine. Beautiful raw pieces of fish and rice now appear from Warsaw and New York to football games in Texas towns. Can this growth continue without consequence?

The first Friday of each month, following Brattleboro’s popular Gallery Walk, BMAC presents Art Films After Gallery Walk, screenings of cinematic gems for only $5.
