Storytelling Series Stories:
Across Time and Space
Indirectly From India: A Story Wrapped in a Tale"
The Harvard Art Museum continues its spring series of Stories: Across Time and Space with an appearance by Washington, DC-based Surabhi Shah on
Tuesday, March 9 at 6:00 pm in Sackler Lecture Hall
(485 Broadway/ Cambridge).
Storyteller Surabhi Shah performs stories of devotion and heroism from the Jain and Hindu traditions-- stories from India, framed in childhood reminiscences of immigrant life and visits to her native land. Learn how the goddess Parvati (eventually) succeeded in helping the love of her life to get over his “ex.” Hear how her son, the god Ganesh, got his distinctive looks – and how he traveled around the world in far fewer than eighty days. Meet Ilachikumar, a tight-rope walker, who gets a glimpse of reality while scaling foolish heights. Find out why Prince Nemikumar’s wedding procession stops short on its approach to his bride. And, if the planets are aligned, Surabhi might just break out some Birbal stories. One never knows. Join us for a set of splendid stories wrapped in true-life tales.
The performance, designed for student and adult audiences, is free of charge. Complimentary parking is available nearby in the Broadway Garage on Felton Street.
