"The Ruby Tree"
FRIDAY 26 September 2014
A King and his Queen long for a child. There is only one way to fulfil this wish: the King must pluck a fruit from the strange and wonderful Ruby Tree, planted by Elijah himself and guarded by a shape- shifting witch. This haunting story has been preserved in Jewish tradition for centuries, carrying echoes of Rapunzel, Snow White and the Twelve Brothers
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.
