Jorinda & Joringel

Margit, Marion and I started our performance video work with the tale Hyacinth and Rosebud which is found in The Apprentices of Sais. We had published this earlier and presented it to our Section members. Our recent effort, also shared recently, was the tale Jorinda and Joringel. We chose this tale for personal reasons (we each had separate personal connections to the tale), but we also chose it because of its clear resonances with the “blue flower.”

Here is the video of Jorinda and Joringel.

The local Section group in Fair Oaks has inspired a sub-group of artists dedicated to the study and performance of Fairy Tales (Märchen), Myths, Legends. This sub-group works in the spirit of Novalis and Ludwig Tieck. This group also produces performance videos and recordings of poetry and drama.
