"Baba Yaga & Other Stories"
FRIDAY 27 February 2015
Xanthe Gresham summons goddesses and heroes to take centre stage, not from some long forgotten past, but emanating from here and now, you and me. She unfolds each tale like the petals of a lotus. At the end, you leave with something beautiful created in your own mind. British Theatre Review
One is Baba Yaga - once a goddess of fire and fertility, now just a witch in Russian folkology. With her iron teeth and cannibalistic tendencies, she scuttles through the forest in a hut balanced on a pair of hairy chicken legs.
The hunger for narrative is a basic human instinct. Stories help us make sense of the world and give structure and order to our everyday lives. They tell us what is important, what is not and give us a way to connect people's individual experiences to those of others. They help us identify with universal truths. Stories are a way we put a human face on the world, which is something we have always needed and valued. Some of our most profound decisions are made emotionally, not rationally. Stories tap into emotions better than anything else.
