The Language of Flowers

In this enchanting performance master storyteller Diane Edgecomb brings to life the legends that surround favorite garden flowers revealing the deep meaning cultures around the world have found in them. The centerpiece of the performance is the Persian legend of the Nightingale and Rose. Diane’s original adaptation of this exotic legend follows the journey of the rose through the ages, weaving together the heartfelt myths that surround it.

Many other flowers are celebrated in this story and music event, including Native American myths and the mysterious “language of flowers” that was celebrated in Victorian times. Accompanied by harper Margot Chamberlain, the performance has music throughout and features story melodies, songs and Celtic harp interludes. Diane’s humorous retelling of Sir Gawain and the Loathly Lady rounds out the program and answers the age old question: What do Women Desire the Most in the World?
