The Act Of Storytelling: Rosa

Story: << 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 >>

I guess what I would like to accomplish also, is the memory. It's important that we’re remembering the stories to, you know, pass them on to their children and their grandchildren. It's also important that they understand the reason behind the stories.

There's a story about Trickster loosing his eyeballs, in that story the lesson behind it is never told to the audience, but the audience has to figure it out. You have to be able to listen to instruction or something bad would happen.

These are the themes, and these are the historical qualities that we think are really important for the audience to understand.
