THE BEAR’S SON: Winter Tales of Hidden Bulgaria
by A Spell In Time
9 December 2016
Beyond nine green forests, in the borderlands between the wild and the civilised, lies a world where anything can happen, a world of man-bears, deer-women and dog-headed people.
In a tale of fate and fortune, transformation and initiation, a hero journeys to the midwinter underworld, three maidens light the way and fertility returns to the land.
Interweaving storytelling, ritual and evocative music, A Spell In Time presents magical tales for grown-ups spiced with warm winter blessings from the heart of Bulgarian myth and folklore. Plus there will be seasonal treats from the Bulgarian Cultural Institute.
Performances are in English and are for adults. They are not suitable for children under 10.
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 very first time. Performers are: Moni Sheehan, storyteller, and Ivor Davies, musician. For this performance we welcome special guests from the wonderful London Bulgarian Choir.
