Open Hearth: with Baba the Storyteller, Wangari Grace, Liz Weir & Martin MacIntyre
The Festival’s famous Open Hearth sessions move online in a ceilidh of cultures. Join us for a specially curated lineup at each session featuring some of the finest traditional storytellers from around the world, hosted by a Scottish storyteller in the ceilidh tradition. The perfect way to end – or start – your day!
Each storyteller will share a story around the theme of Roots, as well as one of their favourite tales from their country or culture.
This event is also part of Signal Fires, a series of theatrical
events at locations across the UK in celebration of our fundamental need
to tell stories. In October and November, fires will light up across the
UK with storytellers and audiences sharing in one of the original forms
of theatre. The fires will signal the vibrancy of touring theatre, and
the threat our industry continues to face.
Signal fire (n): A fire or light set up in a prominent position as a warning, signal, or celebration.
This performance will be live captioned.
