Abbi Patrix & Linda Edsjö : A Concert of Stories at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe
Troubadour Re-Born – Europe’s rediscovered art of story
Who made the first move, the woman or the man? Myth tells us how the Creator accidentally caused this first encounter and how it has transformed the destiny of humankind. Drawing from the world’s great tales, Linda Edsjö and Abbi Patrix mix new and traditional stories with percussion to guide us through our innermost selves in a series of first steps – towards love, journeys, the other world and eternal youth. Set your imagination free and plunge into a world of stories brought to life!
