Storytelling for Adults: Merfolk Tales from Trinidad and Tobago
Time Out says
As well as all that flowery wallpaper, artist and socialist William Morris, incorporated mythical creatures into his designs, like the Romantic-style mermaid figures that pop up in his fabrics. Inspired by these sea nymphs, this online storytelling night from the William Morris Gallery will feature gripping, enchanting merfolk tales from Caribbean lore. Professional storyteller Wendy Shearer will be spinning yarns full of aquatic hauntings, chilling curses and bewitched fishermen, all drawn from her Afro-Caribbean ancestry. Challenging, terrifying, erotic and bizarre: not bad for a Thursday night in.
