Event Description

Naked Hearts
Featuring Eshu Bumpus and Motoko Dworkin

Humor, music, love and desire intertwine as these two award-winning storytellers weave tales that speak to the vulnerability of human hearts. Eshu's smooth, bluesy voice and Motoko's graceful movement will entice you to a journey of the ins and outs of romance.

A rare opportunity to hear two amazing award-winning storytellers in one evening! Eshu and Motoko shine up a storytelling event wherever they appear. Though diverse in style and culture, they blend and tell as one. Absolutely charming, they bring humor, a sense of drama, a talent for singing, and present a seamless performance.
