Pierre Bensusan | Thursday, January, 20, 2011 | 8PM

If "World Music" is music that pays tribute to the spirit of a collection of human beings through distinct rhythms, traditional instruments and harmonic colors, French-Algerian guitarist, singer and composer Pierre Bensusan can be recognized as one of the most eloquent and diverse world musicians of our time. Born in Oran, French-Algeria, in 1957, when France was decolonizing its Empire, Pierre Bensusan's family moved to Paris when he was 4. He began formal studies on piano at the age of 7 and at 11 taught himself guitar.

Let's play more

Let's play more

Maybe it's the winter, maybe it's the recession, maybe it's recent events but I have noticed that people are taking things very seriously these days.  Since I started teaching acting I have developed a passion for working with adults.  People who have gotten bogged down in the day to day.  People who have lost their spark and creativity and who's priorities have shifted away from themselves.  I've become addicted to watching them let themselves play again.  The moment an adult lets go of right and embraces fun is truly a gift.  Usually my class sessions are eight weeks but with the winter and snow and short days I thought it would be nice to do a day workshop; a pick me up of sorts.  I am offering "Acting for Improv/Stand Up--bringing alive the characters that live inside us"  The goal of the workshop is to give a voice and body to the fun parts of us, the voices and people that come out when we let go and play!

Westbrook, ME – Woodfords Family Services and Bei Capelli are teaming up to provide haircuts, at no cost to parents, for children with autism.

"Bei Capelli and the stylists are doing such an amazing thing,” Director of Early Childhood Services Laura Casey said.
