(FR) Rotruenge: 16ème Stage International de musiques et de danses Traditionnelles et du Moyen-Âge (29 Jul-4 Aug 2012)
Rotruenge: 16th International Workshop of music and traditional dances of the Medieval
“Rotruenge is a non-profit organisation formed by Christophe Deslignes in 1996 to introduce as many people as possible to medieval music and dance. It organises recitals and other events, mainly in the Yonne department (Auxerre, Saint-Julien-du-Sault, Seignelay, Georges Hosotte Art Centre in Bailly). In 1997 it started the International Medieval Music and Dance Course and the Saint-Bris Medieval Festival, which the Compagnie Retroencha runs in the medieval village of Saint-Bris-le-Vineux during the first week in August, enabling participants of all ages and abilities to find out or learn more about the song, dance and instrumental music of the period. In addition, a workshop devoted entirely to the reconstruction of medieval dances is held in May each year. Rotruenge is now proposing a series of four master classes at Lissac-sur-Couze, in the Corrèze department, for experienced musicians and existing ensembles.
