Survival Tales is a series of small, intimate performance events. Each event has two parts: a performance featuring personal stories and songs; a short workshop about how we make our survival stories. Booking essential.
Survival Tales flier
Our stories affect people around us, and in turn we get
affected by the stories we hear and see every day.
But there’s a new – and old – challenge looming:
to realise that ‘how we live’ is also ‘how we kill’.
This challenge is phenomenally frightening.
To protect ourselves, we create safe stories:
‘the scientists are lying’, ‘the government will sort it out’, ‘this product will help’.
But the challenge remains.
We need to decide how we live – but how do we make decisions? Is this version of democracy the best we can do?
Who’s in charge? Can we trust any of our solutions?
Can we learn anything from history?
And does anyone have a super-hero cape in my size?
How do we tell the noose and the lifebelt apart?
