Kazakh Fairy Tale Series
with Tim Ereneta
presented by Silk Road House
Sunday, February 22, 1:00-2:30PM
Silk Road House, 1944 University Avenue, #107, Berkeley

The Silk Road House continues live storytelling sessions which will bring you and your children on an imaginary journey to the magical world of fairy tales and epic stories once wildly popular along the historical Silk Roads.

This week, Tim Ereneta takes us across the fiery sea to a land of demons, magical horses, deceitful witches, and enchanted swords in "Kendebai and his Horse Kergula."

In February and March, we are offering a special eight-week storytelling series that presents newly translated Kazakh fairy tales, told for the first time in English. Each session will feature a storytelling performance for all ages, followed by a seminar discussion for adults connecting the stories to Kazakh folk culture led by Silk Road House director and Stanford anthropologist Alma Kunanbaeva. This is a unique opportunity to understand traditional tales in their cultural context, and we hope you can join us, whether once or for the whole program!
