The material culture surrounding life in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries is a central source for learning about how people lived before the age of catchy pop songs, smartphones and even sewing machines. This talk introduces participants to the world of material culture and offers a foundation for creating a living history persona. Learn what research resources are available and how to read extant objects to help build a foundation for developing an accurate reenacting impression. Attendees will view and discuss extant objects, such as an embroidered pocket from the RIHS collection and caps from a private collection, and will leave with an outline of research resources to begin creating their own personal Colonial world. A History Space program presented by the Newport Historical Society and the Rhode Island Historical Society.

DANCE

MUSIC
Sizzling flamenco electrifies the stage as this Madrid-based company of dancers, singers and musicians provides an authentic look at a fiery and expressive art form. Soledad Barrio & Noche Flamenca promise a passionate journey through the very heart and soul of flamenco. All aspects of flamenco – song, dance, and music – are interrelated, creating a true communal spirit among the group’s ten performers. But Barrio is the indisputable star, a great artist without pretense, who makes you aware that, above its virtuosic feet, flamenco is an art of curves, arcs and circles. Her body is her soul’s instrument, ensnared by the music, and you feel yourself fortunate to be in the same space with her.
