The Bear's Son: Tales of Hidden Bulgaria, by A Spell In Time
Beyond nine green forests, in the borderlands between the wild and the civilised, lies a world of man-bears, deer-women and dog-headed people. Fate and fortune twist and turn as a wife runs wild, a girl falls under a dragon's spell, and a hero searches for his true nature.
The Bear's Son harkens back to a time when people turned from hunting to farming but still walked in the way of the animal powers. It's a magical and sometimes savage tale of transformation that comes from the heart of Bulgarian myth and folklore.
Interweaving storytelling, ritual and evocative music, A Spell In Time conjures the half-remembered world of the dreamtime when humans and animals shared the same pathways but began to take a different journey home.
A Spell In Time is an acclaimed British-Bulgarian storytelling company that brings the power and magic of Bulgaria’s myths and folk tales to UK audiences for the first time. Performers are: Moni Sheehan, storyteller, and Ivor Davies, musician.
“Glorious storytelling and music… the stars, the moon and the lamp-posts leaned down to listen” Nell Phoenix, StoryNight at Torriano
