WHAT WOMEN WANT & WRITERS WORKSHOP 4th May
This incredible opportunity to work with Shonaleigh, one of the few remaining drut’sylas or storytellers left in the World and one of the foremost professional storytellers working on the national and international stage.
What Women Want
A wise, witty, ironic look at the most important question ever asked and what happened to some of the many people who have tried to answer it. Storyteller Shonaleigh draws on the wit and wisdom of five thousand years of Jewish womanhood, and all of her personal life experience, to comment with characteristically incisive grace and vigour on the question everyone's been asking, and explain exactly what happened to the marvellous Precious Pearl of Bahrain, and why.
Workshop - Tale, Tongue, and Text
Shonaleigh's work is steeped in the essence and methods of oral narrative tradition, and she will share this expertise in accessible form in this workshop for writers and storytellers. Content includes: narrative arc, pace, pause and set-up; a look at the similarities and differences between the spoken word and the page; making the transitions between the narrative art of the page and that of the tongue, and storyteller's tips and hints for effective and evocative story-writing.
THE RUBY TREE & BUTTERFLIES 7th June The Ruby Tree – told by Shonaleigh
This haunting story has been preserved in Jewish tradition for centuries, carrying echoes of Rapunzel, Snow White and the Twelve Brothers. Our tales may travel, but the themes within them cross cultures, and wherever they go, they speak to us of our longings and failings, the hopes of generations yet to be born, and the triumph of the human spirit.
I Never Saw Another Butterfly
- This devised
play takes a retrospective look at the journey to
the genocide through the eyes of the children of Theresienstadt. From the humiliations on the streets of German cities, the synagogue burnings and the Einsatzgruppen to the wide and varied forms of resistance that people found and took in response to the devastating events of this period.
