Shonaleigh is coming to Christchurch!!
We are delighted to welcome internationally acclaimed storyteller Shonaleigh Cumbers to Christchurch in March 2019. As an authentic 'Drut'syla', Shonaleigh brings with her a rich and ancient tradition of Jewish storytelling. She has put together a generous package of gems with a story event to suit everyone.
Christchurch, the garden city, the city enclosed by mountains and the sea. It is a city that has undergone many changes in the past few years – but what of its more distant history? Come take an easy stroll with us through old parts of Christchurch and hear the stories of the landscape, of the ancient trees, and the first settlers and the maori who came here to hunt the marshy plains. Hear new stories of regeneration as Christchurch recovers from the earthquakes.
“That’s what the storyteller should be: a great guide, a clear mind, who can walk a silver line in hell or madness.”
2017 will be another exciting year for The Story Collective!!
