Urashima Taro, my body is a palace
A traditional Japanese tale rewritten and told by Barbara Dauwe
Considered one of the oldest and most popular tales in Japan, the legend of Urashima Taro is perhaps one of the oldest stories about the relativity of time.
- Workshop on Saturday, March 19 at 3pm
The wolf and the chaperon
A version of the tale where the Wolf is not the danger, where the hunter, father of the chaperon is ready to eliminate what scares him. A love story between the freedom-loving Riding Hood and the Wolf, … a young girl who “runs with the wolves”.
“I have a wild, untamable, fiery side. Ever since I was a little girl, I have been climbing trees, fighting with boys, and my mother is often dismayed to find me covered in leaves and dirt, with my clothes undone and my hair in my teeth. I have to share my story with you. The real one, not the one everyone knows!”
- Workshop on Saturday, April 2 at 3pm
The eyelash of the wolf
A traditional Japanese tale about the wild woman and female intuition.
A Wolf who offers a woman to see what is true and what is not. This tale transgresses laws and prejudices and invites us to philosophize about femininity and in particular about the importance of transgression, to get out of the social models imposed on women by the Judeo-Christian tradition. The tale “The Eyelash of the Wolf”, proposes to us to find the conscience of oneself and especially, the full confidence in oneself.
For these workshops, reservations are highly recommended.
