A Thousand Doorways
August 2nd-18th Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Edinburgh, Scotland
Diane’s real-life quest to record the vanishing storytellers of Kurdistan leads to a harrowing, revelatory journey in Turkey. Mystical carpet dealers, chain-smoking grandmothers and shy village heroes unlock the hidden life of the mountains where true stories of their struggle mix with enigmatic ancient legends. A doorway opens onto a very different world, a fairytale landscape of shepherds, guard towers, caravans, impossible mountain passes and the mysterious “Eggs of the Ancient Tree.” A master storyteller, Diane takes the audience to the heart of her life-changing journey among the Kurds, bringing to life an unforgettable world.
