The Groundlings present: Kevin Kling
Join us for this one-of-a-kind Masterclass
Ages: High school & up
Tall tales, myths, folktales and poems came over the ocean with waves of immigrants to a land where a powerful storytelling culture already existed.
How did our family narratives bring comfort, community and resiliency? How did they change to address new challenges? Stories from our ancestors speak to us from a deeper place and can reveal unexpected wisdom.
For this workshop bring a story, myth or folktale from your family's past or a traditional story that feels personally relevant. We will explore how our own stories fit in this pantheon. How do our stories connect us through time, landscape and culture? We each, after all, are the hero of our own story.
