Folklore and Fairy Tales ~ Beyond the Fairy Dust! Join us for a fun-filled evening of folklore and fairy themed presentations of original creations inspired by our 2019 NICE project's selected stories and passages! Wearing your fairy-themed clothing is encouraged! Each year, we encourage discussion of classic literature through a modern lens, and this year we looked at these four folklore stories and fairy tales: The Story of Hunahpú and Xbalanqué (in Popul Vuh, trans. Ximénez, c. 1700), The Little Mermaid (Hans Christian Anderson, 1836), The Ballad of Tam Lin (c. 1549), and Hansel and Gretel (The Brothers Grimm, 1812). The workshops focused discussion on the original themes, which are usually somewhat darker than what we find in translations/retellings and films in popular culture over time. Our presenters have created original artwork, poetry, prose, and music inspired by this year’s NICE project, and some presenters participated in our workshops earlier this year. Doors open at 6pm with art viewing and Emily Wasonga from Love's Hangover Creations selling her popular sampler plates of International Cuisine ($10 each, prepay at https://www.paypal.me/LHOCreations). Presentations begin at 7pm. Come on out and see what our NICE creative friends made!
