Mark Wilder Juggling Workshop

Something Ridiculous is the high-energy juggling and acrobatic act performed by slapstick stuntmen Mark Wilder and VonJon. Juggling everything from machetes to flaming torches, the comic duo climbs up free-standing ladders, onto seven-foot-tall unicycles or atop shoulders in a wildly entertaining, dynamic show.

In addition to performing, Mark and VonJon love to share their passion for the circus arts and will teach anyone willing to give it a try.  They believe that juggling and other circus arts offer powerful creative and physical outlets for kids of all ages.  Something Ridiculous has worked to share this passion at school assemblies, after-school programs, summer camps, youth arts programs, museums, libraries, and more.  

Mark and VonJon are excited to bring their energetic and ridiculous show back to Live Oak and to play with oakies and acorns of all ages...

 

 "The Good Folk Show" with Erin Inglish & Anna Cospar

Join us for a folk-tastic banjo and puppet musical this year at Live Oak's children's concert! Featuring original music by California banjo songstress Erin Inglish and visual art and puppetry by Dutch-American artist Anna Cosper, "The Good Folk Show" is an one-of-a-kind show for kids of all ages that celebrates the joys of art, music, kindness and eco-conscious living. Take-away messages are woven into delightful stories, songs, and educational messages through musical vignettes featuring singing, banjo, body percussion, puppetry, shadow theater, creative visual imagery, and audience participation! 

Artists Inglish and Cosper will be debuting "The Good Folk Show" as they tour entirely by bicycle from Portland, Oregon, to San Luis Obispo, California as part of Erin Inglish's 2014 Earth*Bike*Banjo tour, sharing the musical with schools, non-profits, kids programs, and festivals. In addition to being fun and artistic, this show is designed with the California Education and the Environment Initiative (EEI) and the new Common Core Standards in mind. More information at www.earthbikenbanjo.comwww.erininglish.com, and www.annacosper.com

Erin Inglish is a solo lady banjo act with a clear voice, expressive banjo, body percussion, and thoughtful songs. This internationally-touring, banjo-wielding woman presents a “raw, sweet and sincere Emmy Lou-ish sound…[and] she makes the banjo sound like a musical instrument” (fan, North Carolina). From the kind and conscientious messages in her songwriting, to her magnetic and entertaining stage-presence, Inglish is a consummate performer and humanistic storyteller. She is a “retired” engineer, has lived abroad for four years in five countries, and her songwriting reflects her worldly travels and grounding passion for sustainability and art. In April, 2013, Inglish released her first solo album titled A Melody So Sweet and then toured – by bicycle – the entire coast of California to celebrate Earth Month. She is also the organizer of the largest collaborative project in the world amongst female banjo players – the Banjo Babes 2014 Calendar & Showcase Album. In March 2014, Inglish will take to the road by bicycle again for her second-annual Earth*Bike*Banjo tour, debuting a one-of-a-kind banjo/puppet kids musical called "The Good Folk Show" with Dutch-American artist Anna Cosper. (www.erininglish.com)

Anna Cosper is a visual artist and puppeteer based out Portland, Oregon. Cosper studied illustration at CABK Art Academy in the Netherlands, where  she specialized in stop-motion animation. She animated for television and galleries before becoming involved in theater productions in the Netherlands and abroad. Cosper completed the UNIMA School for Puppet and Object Theater in Amsterdam in 2008.  She has given workshops in animation and/or puppetry in Botswana, Burma, the Netherlands, the US, and Thailand. She will be joining and bicycling with Erin Inglish's Earth*Bike*Banjo 2014 Tour debuting their original musical, "The Good Folk Show" by Inglish and Cosper - a fun and inspirational children's show!

Little Acorns Toddler Oasis and Family Stage

Two years ago we added the toddler oasis to the children's camp. This is is our fenced in 30x30 oasis for Live oak's youngest guest, which is open on Friday from 2pm-6pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10am until 6pm. This year we'll bring more music and story telling to the Oasis Stage! Coming soon!

 

Yoga with Dan Hall

Dan's interest in Yoga was first piqued while working in the healthcare field in the 80’s. Participating in physical therapy, due to an injury, he found that many of the exercises
paralleled Yoga asanas (postures). Dan says, "My foundation is in the Iyengar system of Yoga, learning proper alignment. He is certified at the 500 hour level. Going hand-in-hand
with my study of Yoga, I was introduced to Buddhism in the early 90’s. I had the good fortune to participate in Buddhist study in China in 2007. In addition to the physical
application of Yoga, Seva is an important part of my practice. Seva involves living compassionately, in such a way that uplifts and assists others on both a local and
global scale. In 2008, I traveled to Nicaragua to assist indigenous people in the construction of their homes through Habitat for Humanity, and was able to share Yoga
while in that setting. Join me at the Second Stage, Saturday and Sunday morning and we’ll get the kinks out and the prana flowing.
Blessings,
Dan"
