Crispin d’Olot – “Lopemaquia” : 20th Century Minstrel from Spain
Free – Open to the general public

Chatham County Public Libraries in collaboration with Artist Studio Project and the 5th Annual El Quixote Festival are proud to present an afternoon filled with music, comedy, literature, and friendship featuring 20th Century Minstrel Crispin d’Olot of Leon, Spain!

Join us on Saturday, October 19th, from 1:00-2:00 pm, at the Wren Memorial Library in Siler City as Crispin performs a re-imagined conversation between Lope and Cervantes, as well as performing some of Quevedo, Luis de Góngora and many others. This performance will be in Spanish with some English translations.

20 years ago Crispin d’Olot, old-fashioned troubadour, started performing in theaters, schools and places of Spain, Europe, and Latin America. This theatrical, poetic and musical adventure was a response which this literary “jongleur” found utilizing classical literature as a tool to reconstruct cultural imaginary essential to a society increasingly marked by violence and the inability to meet on common points of identity and values. Currently, Crispin d’Olot is considered a necessary cultural reference, he has been blessed with great successes on television especially prime time where the format has helped him promote his artistic quality.

This event is free and open to the public. Funding for the performance is made available by the generous support of the Friends of the Chatham Community Library.

¡Las Bibliotecas Públicas del Condado de Chatham en colaboración con Artist Studio Project y el 5º Festival Anual de El Quijote se enorgullecen en presentar una tarde llena de música, comedia, literatura y amistad con el trovador del siglo XX Crispín d’Olot de León, España!

Únase a nosotros el sábado 19 de octubre, de 1: 00-2: 00 pm, en la Biblioteca Wren Memorial en Siler City mientras Crispín realiza una conversación re imaginada entre Lope y Cervantes, además de interpretar a Quevedo, Luis de Góngora y muchos otros. Esta presentación será en español con algunas traducciones al inglés.

Hace 20 años que Crispín d’Olot, trovador a la vieja usanza, viene representado por teatros, escuelas y plazas de España, Europa y América Latina. Esta aventura teatral, poética y musical, nació como respuesta del último juglar literario -que encontró en la literatura clásica una herramienta de cultura para reconstruir imaginarios que permiten el rescate de nuestra esencia- a una sociedad cada vez más marcada por la violencia y la incapacidad para reunirse en torno a puntos comunes de identidad y valores. En la actualidad Crispín d’Olot es considerado un referente cultural obligado, llegando incluso a cosechar grandes éxitos en programas de televisión de máxima audiencia por su poder de convocatoria y la calidad artística y nivel de producción.

Este evento es gratis y abierto al público. Los fondos para la presentación están disponibles gracias al generoso apoyo de los Friends of the Chatham Community Library.
