This is Campanile's first video (shot in the early 1990's) of what became known as the "Standup Show." This was the group's first iconoclastic attempt at changing the face of ringing; the jumping off point for their later, tradition-smashing shows, "Nocturnal Journeys" and "Rites of Sound."
In this early video, the static tables are still present, but dancing is already a huge component, and the philosophy of engaging the audience above all, is already in place.About Campanile:Campanile performed music, dance, and spoken word for 15 years in theatres throughout North America and Asia. A cast of 9 performers weave a web of myth while performing on acoustic and electric bells, percussion, strings, and winds.In 2006, Campanile gave one final performance before retiring, but the tradition lives on! Campanile members continue to ring, write, teach, play, and serve the handbell community.
Enjoy this concert as a 48 hour rental.
