  • American Travelling Morrice Performance

    This performance will take place in the side staff parking lot of the Library.

    The American Travelling Morrice is comprised of dancers and musicians from across North America and abroad. Morris dancing is an English country tradition, with roots in medieval street theatre. For hundreds of years, teams of white-clad dancers have capered and stepped through the intricate patterns of the dance, clashing wooden sticks and waving handkerchiefs in time to lively traditional tunes. The American Travelling Morrice continues this tradition for a week each summer, bringing the morris dance to a new geographical region.

    A morris “stand” is a colorful spectacle indeed. The dancers, with small bells strapped to their legs, leap through complex figures accompanied by the music of the accordion, fiddle, or the ancient pipe and tabor. Directing the proceedings with comical grace is the all-licensed Fool, whose antics amuse the onlookers and harass the dancers. Moreover, it was thought in ancient times that morris dancing brought good luck and prosperity to the community.
