Tales for the Earth
Tales for the Earth is a celebration of Nature and all the simple things we can do to help. This beloved performance is both educational and entertaining, exploring topics such as water conservation, recycling and the wonder of the creatures all around us through involving and participatory narratives. Stories include: What Now, Cloacina?, Diane’s hilarious water conservation story about a water sprite who travels through the sewage system in search of her pond. The Tailor! a participatory folktale that has us all telling the story by the end and a contemporary story about a child’s encounter with fireflies. What shines through the entire presentation is a love and respect for our place in nature; with many ideas communicated about how we can create a difference.
