Voices from the Wild
An evening of traditional tales from a well-travelled storyteller who wanders far from home but still keeps his feet firmly on Welsh soil. The first half of the evening will whet our appetite with a variety of stories from near and far before plunging us into the mysterious world of the Breton wonder tale in the second half of the evening.
Get ready for a landscape filled with encounters with beauties, beasts, strange companions, bizarre marriages, and ruthless atonement. In a charm-your-socks-off performance, Michael Harvey draws on the collections of François-Marie Luzel and others, to recast and retell these grown up tales of wonder with a disarmingly light touch. These stories come from a place where everyday life and the fantastic collide – somewhere simultaneously earthy, ethereal and real… with a decidedly comedic twist.
Michael was a recipient of a Major Creative Wales Award in 2011 and is a leading figure in the storytelling revival. He works all over Wales and regularly tours abroad and is currently attached to La Maison du Conte in Paris, a major centre of research and experimentation in contemporary storytelling.
