A Dancing River Sprite Frolicking Feast

on 22 December, 2018 beginning at 7pm in the Nonesuch Café

 dancing spriteThe creation of chef George Smith and Cora-Lee Eisses-Smith, the Dancing River Sprite Frolicking Feasts are six-course literary feasts that occur on mostly the last weekend of every month in Middle River, Cape Breton.

Occasionally George and Cora-Lee also hit the road for pop-up appearances and we are delighted that the pair will be offering a feast in Parrsboro for the first time this December as part of FEAL, the festival of erotic arts & literature.

 

Cora-Lee

Chef George will prepare a six-course menu* based on what is locally available as well as food references found in a work of literature chosen by Cora-Lee, who will perform costumed readings from the book with each course.

Described by The Guardian as “a deep sensual plunge, a worship of the body, inside and out“, the work Cora-Lee has selected for us is Jeanette Winterson’s fourth novel Written On The Body.  Published in 1992, the New York Times Book Review described it as “an ambitious work, at once a love story and a philosophical meditation on the body… a work that is consistently revelatory about the phenomenon of love“.

Chef George will also talk about how he prepared the food, where he sourced the ingredients, and many other tangents of curiosity and nonsense.

Fall-2018-base-workshopWEBSITES, SOCIAL MEDIA & TECHNOLOGY: CREATING YOUR BRAND

Technology gives artists powerful tools to build a professional presence. But knowing which tools are best, and how to use them effectively, can be a challenge. This workshop will provide an overview of the top website builders, email marketing and newsletter services, and social networks (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) that can help you build your brand. You’ll get a look at these tools in action, and learn how you can use them in your own professional practice to enhance your online presence and boost your business.

We’ll also take a look at search engines, social media advertising, and in-person sales technology like Square, as well as the most reputable sites to sell your work, whether you sell from your own website or not. At the end of this session you’ll see how the tools discussed fit together to help you work smarter, and how to reach your goals within a sensible schedule and well within the leanest budget.
