July 10th Friday Night!

Flamenco Bello
(Beautiful Flamenco)

Featuring dancers Melissa Cruz, Clare Rodriguez Stanley, Holly Shaw and
guitarist/singer Esteban Bello.

Melissa Cruz is a full-time professional flamenco dancer based in the San
Francisco Bay Area. When she is not touring the world with various
flamenco companies, she divides her time between practicing and teaching
her many students in her studio in Oakland, California. She is renowned
for her powerful and exciting style.

Clare Rodriguez Stanley began her study of flamenco dance in early
childhood with Roberto Amaral, Eva Yerbabuena and Belen Maya. She began
her professional flamenco dance career in Spain in her early twenties,
performing with such noted artists as Rafalin Habichuela, Emilio Maya, Ana
Calf and Juan Angel Tirado. She is the director of her own flamenco
company, Aqua Clara Flamenco. She continues to teach, perform and tour on
a regular basis.

Holly Shaw is well known as a flamenco dancer in the Bay Area, where she
performs regularly. She also gives workshops exploring the spiritual side
of dance performance, empowering others to tap into their inner being as a
source of artistic inspiration. She is celebrated for her lyrical
interpretation of flamenco, where she incorporates elements of other dance
forms.

Esteban Bello brings to flamenco a unique blend of musical styles. He
began his professional career as a New York jazz musician at the age of
13. He later won a scholarship to study classical guitar with Andres
Segovia, Julian Bream and Narciso Yepes. In addition, he attended Mannes
Conservatory of Music. A protege of Jason McGuire, El Rubio, Esteban has
studied flamenco for the last ten years. He has also studied flamenco
singing with Agustin Rios, Anzonini del Puerto, Manuel Malena, Jesus
Montoya and Jose Cortes.

SUNDAY! JULY 5th

Poetry Unbound #26


11406988_10153372185717579_3249195724881135166_nPamela hails from a fearless but gentle place, planting seeds deftly wherever she speaks. Alongside them, we have the ultra-fabulous BeachHead, manifest in flesh by the East Bay’s own Pagan Neil and Alan Shearer, also in their fifth decade of twisting minds and ethos with their seductive strains of words and violin. This is a serious deal show and not to be missed! This month also marks the departure of Richard Loranger as co-host and organizer for the series, which will be carried on by Clive Matson and others.

Poetry Unbound is a monthly reading series dedicated to presenting new work in a broad range of styles and genres, and to bringing together writers from different circles and communities, to strengthen and unite. We present passionate wordsmiths on the first Sunday of each month, with a brief open mic, at the Art House Gallery in Berkeley. Hosted by Oakland writers Richard Loranger and Clive Matson.

She has read her poetry in many venues, alongside Andy Clausen, Peter Lamborn Wilson, Mikhail Horowitz, Anne Waldman, Antler, Jeff Poniewaz, and Charles Plymell, to name a few, often accompanied by Cosmic Legends. Over the years she has developed a very personal style, sometimes tender and lyrical, sometimes brutally frank, resonating with the wisdom of her partially Native American heritage.

He’s put out over a dozen chapbooks, recordings & 1 dictionary (Book of Love, An Encyclopedic Lexicon of the Word Love), making him a lexicographer as well as a bard.
