Bringing Back to Life/Folk & Fae Storytellingnight Special
Date: Wed 20.11 Time: 20:00 - 23:00
For Bringing Back to Life, host and co-curator Soula Notos invites a number of storytellers to bring a famous folk tale or myth back to life, and to re-write them borrowing a character or an event from another tale or reality as an attempt to shift the dominant narrative and subvert it, inserting other desires and urgencies. The storytellers will be joined by one writer who has worked on the ‘Dancing on the Edge’ collective writing project, titled Second-Hand Body which shares this approach of (de)constructing a narrative. She will in turn read and perform pieces of their writing.
Performing this Wednesday are: Ogutu Muraya, Esra Seval Dede, Yaël van der Wouden, Bipin Upadhyay, Babs Franklin Gons, and music by: Anastasis Sarakatsanos and Esmail Bnaoe! Host: Soula Notos
‘Dancing on the Edge’ finds the perfect partner in Mezrab to explore and experience the need for alternative stages, engaged communities, diverse audiences and for emphasizing the politics of storytelling, performance and collective experience.
Each night is based on themes within the festival and explored through performances, storytelling and music. A program bringing together local performers and festival performers with spectators who would like to jam or use the open mic.
