"The Wisdom and Wonder of Folktales" by Heather Forest, plus some Open Mic
Folktales and fables from around the world come to life in the imagination of the listener as Heather Forest spins her tales. Her unique minstrel style of storytelling is a weave of vivid language, original music, and the sung and spoken word. This program, selected from Ms. Forestís award winning books: Wonder Tales from Around the World and Wisdom Tales from Around the World, celebrates stories that contain kernels of homespun wisdom passed down through the oral tradition. Although these stories span time and place and come from cultures around the globe they show us the commonality of human experience.
Saturday, Nov. 4, 8:00 - 10:00†
"Tales of Womenfolk" by Heather Forest, plus some Open Mic
This collection of folktales told in song, poetry and prose, features multicultural "sheroes" who, unlike the passive fairytale princesses who wait to be saved by the prince, are courageous and resourceful and embody many diverse facets of strength, from intelligence to wit to physical prowess to undaunted optimism. From comedy to drama, this wide pallet of tales is an entertaining and poignant celebration of contemporary femininity.
