5th Annual NICE ~ Folklore and Fairy Tales ~ Beyond the Fairy Dust


Online audio/video links times TBA!

Community Education Arts / https://cearts.org

Join us for a fun-filled event featuring folklore and fairy themed presentations of original creations inspired by our 2019 NICE project's selected stories and passages! Each year, we encourage discussion of classic literature through a modern lens, and this year we looked at these four folklore stories and fairy tales: The Story of Hunahpú and Xbalanqué (in Popul Vuh, trans. Ximénez, c. 1700), The Little Mermaid (Hans Christian Anderson, 1836), The Ballad of Tam Lin (nd), and Hansel and Gretel (The Brothers Grimm, 1812). The workshops focused discussion on the original themes, which are usually somewhat darker than what we find in translations/retellings and films in popular culture over time. Our presenters have created original artwork, poetry, prose, and music inspired by this year’s NICE project, and some presenters participated in our workshops earlier this year.
