ALL NEW TALES ROLLOUT PART 8/9: The ash (the ruin of Napht). Source material: Arach ben Hassul, a Sudanese storyteller and camel driver, who told it to Leo Frobenius in 1912. This is a story told by a storyteller, about a storyteller, told to a storyteller (Frobenius), and now we are taking it to tell our own way. It’s also about sacrifice, about apocalypse, about love and sensitivity, about the act of listening, about falling in love while listening to and telling stories, about a city, about declines, about life vs religion and if those two things are separable, about stars in the night sky...essentially all of our interests in one tale. The storytelling tradition from the Kordofan region of Sudan is an enormous and stunning universe. A welcome presence in this show.
We replaced our whole batch of stories with nine new ones we have to learn by Monday. One a day revealed here for the next two days.
