High-quality storytelling from a local performer with fire in her belly.
If you have a burning desire for really well-told folklore, hotfoot it over to Fire Women
Storytelling pro Leigh-Anne Kehler recounts the tales of five different women who literally and metaphorically walk through fire for the people and principles they hold dear. Among them, a farm woman who fights the elements to save her husband, an Indian princess who outwits the god of death and a nun who confronts a modern-day witchhunt.
With inventive hands, Kehler transforms her single prop - a red scarf - into a myriad of objects: a blindfold, a baby carrier, a porpoise. And she transports us around the world and through time from a prairie blizzard to the Land of Lost Souls to the islands of Micronesia.
This is high-quality storytelling from a local performer with fire in her belly.
