Wednesday 20 September 19:30–22:00
Beyond nine green forests, in the borderlands between the wild and the civilised, lies a world of man-bears, deer-women and dog-headed people. Fate and fortune twist and turn as a wife runs wild, a girl falls under a dragon’s spell, and a hero searches for his true nature.
“The Bear’s Son” harkens back to a time when people turned from hunting to farming but still walked in the way of animal powers. Interweaving storytelling, ritual and evocative music, A Spell In Time presents earth-stirring tales of transformation from the wild and wonderful heart of Bulgarian myth and folklore.
A Spell In Time is an acclaimed British-Bulgarian storytelling company that brings the power and magic of Bulgaria’s myths and folk tales to UK audiences for the first time. The Company has toured both nationally and internationally, and makes a welcome return visit to Sheffield. Performers are: Moni Sheehan, storyteller, and Ivor Davies, musician.
“Glorious storytelling and music… the stars, the moon and the lamp-posts leaned down to listen” Nell Phoenix, StoryNight at Torriano
