Shakespeare in the Litchfield Hills
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Shakespeare in the Litchfield Hills, set for August 2020, has been postponed until 2021 – but Emily Mattina wants to talk about it now! Next summer’s interactive community event will culminate in 5  FREE outdoor “Shakespeare in the Park” presentations of Twelfth Night, produced by Shakesperience Productions, Inc. and featuring professional Equity actors. This project will engage the community with stage building, community discussions, actor instructed classes for young people, post-performance talk packs with the company and much more.

It takes more than a year to produce an outdoor Shakespeare production, and Shakesperience is hard at work doing just that. Ms. Mattina will lead a conversation and visual presentation, entitled “Twelfth Night or What You Will.” Join her as she leverages her expertise in the text and times of William Shakespeare to discuss the underlying themes found in Twelfth Night. She’ll discuss identity and empathy, excess versus puritanism, and prospective versus reality as she uses the Bard’s work as a catalyst for creating community conversation. The event offers a sneak peek at the ongoing costume, scenery, and music designs. How passionate is Emily Mattina about this Shakespeare play? She named her daughter Viola after the central character.

Henna by Elyse
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

 Join us for a family-friendly virtual Henna program via Zoom! Henna is an ancient form of temporary, plant-based body art used by cultures across India, northern Africa and the Middle East for thousands of years. Henna artist Elyse Sadtler will lead an online Zoom workshop to learn all about this ancient tradition right in the comfort and safety of your own home. In this workshop you will explore what henna is, where it comes from, its history, the science of henna on skin and basic design elements. You'll also play a "Fact or Fiction" trivia game, watch a henna paste mixing demonstration, and learn how to draw your own mandala. Elyse will also share resources where you can purchase your own henna supplies to begin your own henna journey.

Elyse Sadtler is an Internationally Certified Natural Henna Artist based in Northwest Connecticut.​ After being introduced to henna by an Indian friend, she became passionate about this ancient art form. As a self-taught professional, she enjoys experimenting with various design elements from intricate Indian patterns to geometric Moroccan motifs. A state certified educator by trade, Elyse puts her love of teaching to use by offering workshops and classes to teach others about this beautiful form of body art. Henna allows for endless creative expression, and she enjoys sharing it with others! When not teaching or doing henna, you'll find Elyse spending time outside with her husband and dog, reading, and writing for a local newspaper. Visit https://www.hennabyelyse.com/ for more information.
