Uncovering The Spirit Within
As Winter winds down and Spring approaches, join Ingrid Nixon, Howard Adler and Eric Foxman as they explore ancient legends and the experiences of yesterday to discover the hope and new beginnings that lay hidden yet nurture the spirit.
From a background of community theater, Eric Foxman turned to storytelling a quarter century ago in order to share the literary tales that had deeply touched him. In the interim, as he performed in New York / New England, the Southwest and throughout the Pacific Northwest, as well as Canada, Germany, and England, his repertoire has grown to encompass personal stories, traditional legends and historic tales.
As a teacher at Benson High School, Howard Adler let his Monday classes begin with stories from the students. Which isn’t a surprise, as he has been a member of the Guild for over a dozen years. To those students, he brings stories from his years in New York, and from his love of the cultural folklore roots that still suffuse his life.
Ingrid Nixon has a strong affinity for wild places and the creatures that inhabit them. Having grown up in the Pacific Northwest, she lived in Alaska for over two decades working for much of that time as a National Park Service ranger. These days, she is a professional storyteller who tells stories on expeditions around the world and at venues around the country, including the National Storytelling Festival. She holds a Masters in Storytelling from East Tennessee State University.
Out of this rich wellspring of diverse tales, Ingrid, Howard and Eric bring you an evening of stories celebrating the Nurturing of Our Spirits. Joined by Gretchen Peterson as the host for the evening and Avery Hill providing pre-show music, the Portland Storytellers Guild is delighted to share with you a program of stories that will be a harbinger of our awakening and renewal in the Spring.
Saturday, March 3, curtain at 7:30 pm (Doors open at 7:00 pm) in the Clinton Street Theater 2522 SE Clinton St, Portland, OR 97202
