EVENT PROLOGUE: Sheherezade, the medieval storyteller, told stories for 1001 nights in order to save her life from the cruel sultan Sharyar, who married a virgin every night and had her killed next morning. Only Sheherezade’s stories could stop him from his murderous insanity. The 1001 Nights Storytelling Festival and its participants are out to prove that the 21st century is the new Oral Century. They believe that New Orleans and Transylvania are the places where Sheherezade 2 is going to offer a new model for survival through storytelling. The events will center entirely on the human voice and imagination.

The Transylvanians will unveil sequels to the 1001 Nights in English translation, some of them interpreted by New Orleans actors, surprise musicians and dancers, while the New Orleanians will unveil accounts of unmerciful fabulosity.

Also featured in this festival — A meeting of Two-Continent Imaginations: Corin Braga, founder of The Center For Imagination Studies from Cluj, Transylvania, and Confessor Emeritus of Abomination and founder of The New Orleans School for the Imagination Dave Brinks joined by collaborateurs Andrei Codrescu and Bill Lavender.

This festival is made possible by the Romanian Cultural Institute in New York and the Gold Mine Saloon, in collaboration with the University of New Orleans (UNO) – UNO Press and the Division of International Education.

(în imaginea de sus scena epico-lirică din Gold Mine Saloon, unde am citit în 2009 din Femeia-cruciat și Submarinul iertat – aceeași scenă unde se va desfășura acum, între 22-24 septembrie 2010, competiția epică pe temă șeherezadică între povestașii clujeviți, moldavi și niuorlinezi!)

So, see you later!

    How did everything go? Mesmeea, nu ne mai perpeli la foc marunt creolo-transilvan, te rog.

  4. mesmeeacuttita Says:

    anemone stie prea bine ca voi spune in curand povestea, doar sa imi trag sufletul, sa descarc imaginile (cateva sute) si filmuletele, sa mai si socializez prin clujeusis, asa cum ii sta bine unui calator! 🙂
