Feeding the Gods: An Evening of Sacred Story
Featuring Storyteller Brian Rohr
Saturday, April 9 – 6:30pm; Doors open at 6:15pm
Location: Forsterville – 4629 SE 64th Ave, Portland, OR
Storyteller/Mythteller Brian Rohr will be returning to the Fosterville Ecovillage for the third time to share the old sacred stories, weaving this into a seasonal tradition. Join us as we journey together, finding our unique place amongst the ancient tales.
Sound artist Hamid Bennett will once again be joining Brian with wild musical accompaniment.
Everyone is welcome. It will be a sliding scale donation of $12-$20 though no one will be turned away. If you cannot bring money, please bring something else to offer – fresh vegetables from your garden, homemade jam, beautiful weavings, fermented veggies, honey from your bees, a unique original poem handwritten on special parchment, eggs from your chickens… you get the idea! Something unique, local and special. If you can’t bring that, then just bring yourself.
“Sharing the ancient art of storytelling as a way to educate, entertain and offer healing to individuals, communities and the living world.”
Brian Rohr is a Storyteller/Mythteller who resides here in the Pacific Northwest.
In 2007 he began his mentorship in the art and magic of performative mythology and storytelling with mythologist and master storyteller Daniel Deardorff.
Since this time, Rohr has toured as a featured teller for national audiences, taught and performed at major conferences, festivals, high schools, universities, synagogues and libraries. The list includes: Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle; Illinois State University; Trickster Tales Storytelling Festival in Washington State; Tapestry of Jewish Learning in Austin, TX, the Mankind Project, The Sacred Storytelling Series in Portland, OR and more.
As a storyteller, Brian focuses on the old stories – the myths, folktales and fairy tales – from many different cultures, knowing that these old stories are alive, vital and can inform us on how to live our lives as authentic human beings, helping to make sense and meaning of the living world we are a part of.
