Vergine Gulbenkian tells The Old Woman and the Pilgrim
October 1 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The inspiration comes from Markandeya, the pilgrim, and his encounter with Vishnu.
And into that embrace, fall a couple of spacious, timeless wonder tales that have grown in me.
Vergine Gulbenkian was drawn to performance storytelling as a direct and essential form of communication in 1991, after studying drama.
Her interest led her at first to research the rich Armenian oral tradition. She now creates shows based on traditional tales, epics and myths from around the world and performs them in venues that include theatres, arts centres, outdoor festivals in India, village halls throughout the UK and Online from her bedroom.
She is attracted to the process of letting a story breathe, allowing it to appear in its essential form, listening to how it wants to be told and watching it come to life in the creative space between teller and listener.
