Exploring how stories can be guides to deeper self-awareness, freedom and wholeness that God offers us… From Christian perspectives, we will explore the famous tales of Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella. And then: As the gong is sounded, an ancient Emperor of Japan appears, his
eyes held by what he has just read about the exquisite song of the Nightingale… Sit back, relax and enjoy the performance… We will seek to enter another world and mine the treasures of this old story through storytelling and simple, inclusive theatre techniques. We will discuss questions that
can emerge from the story e.g. what do we really need to be happy and have peace of mind? An opportunity to let the imagination run wild and let Hans Christian Andersen’s wonderful tale of ‘The Nightingale’ take you where it will!’
