Tellers, Tale, Tradition: The Emerald Sea (Private Event)

Friday, May 4, 2018 @ 7:30 pm – Sunday, May 6, 2018 @ 2:30 pm

A unique, immersive weekend of storytelling for adults from the world-renowned tradition bearer and storyteller Shonaleigh.

In this episode of Shonaleigh’s acclaimed Gem cycle, Prince Rahab’s kingdom is threatened. The power which, from the beginning of time, has held destructive waters in check depends on the inscription of an unutterable name, and the name is being erased.

Rahab and his Queen must make a sacrifice to save the kingdom, but the prince has been imprisoned by a woman who has been done a terrible wrong, and the queen is on a quest to find him.

This is a rare and unique chance to hear these ancient tales in the light and on the tongue, stories untold for two generations and barely spoken of for decades.

Shonaleigh is a Druts’yla, and carries a living unbroken oral tradition passed down from Grandmother to Granddaughter by generations of Jewish women. Shonaleigh knows around four thousand tales that she can recall on request, using the lost art of ‘stories within stories’.
