32 storytellers present tales of the Middle East Friday and Saturday in Shoreline

Stories, food, and dancing

Come hear 32 storytellers from California, Oregon, Washington, and Canada tell stories from this classic epic - 1001 Nights - with roots reaching back to ancient and medieval Arabic, Persian, Indian, Jewish and Turkish folklore.

The overarching frame tale of the epic is certainly relevant today: Scheherazade tells stories for 1001 nights to an angry tyrant in order to save the lives of her fellow country women… and these tales eventually heal the sultan’s insanity, bringing peace to the land.
