WHAT'S ON in MAY

Alex Ultradish

ALEX ULTRADISH
"Two Birds"
FRIDAY 26 MAY 2017
£7 admission

During Alex's maternity non leave, she visited the park. A lot. Not very remarkable you may think but wait til you hear what she learned on her visits. Stories from all over the world. Short ones, long ones, happy ones, others not so.

Telling of tales new or old will be given the standard Ultradish treatment, mixing tradtional with contemporary. Join her on a journey from your seat to the skies via the local pond. If you have a babel fish, bring that too.

Disclaimer: There will not be any nappy talk or photos of the child you must coo over.

STORYTELLING

The hunger for narrative is a basic human instinct. Stories help us make sense of the world and give structure and order to our everyday lives.  They tell us what is important, what is not and give us a way to connect people's individual experiences to those of others. They help us identify with universal truths. Stories are a way we put a human face on the world, which is something we have always needed and valued. Some of our most profound decisions are made emotionally, not rationally. Stories tap into emotions better than anything else.

If you want to know more, come and listen to the Shaggy Dog Storytellers presenting
