Mermaid Arts Centre and YARN Storytelling Festival Bray are delighted to bring you one of the world's finest storytellers, zooming right into your living room!
Dovie Thomason (Lakota/Kiowa Apache) is a beloved First Nations storyteller. In her original stories, she weaves historical facts, personal experiences, humour and vivid imagery to promote understanding and respect. Her ability to craft tales that not only enchant audiences, but also carry invaluable lessons about human nature and indigenous cultures, have garnered her international acclaim. The wry humour and subtle graces that infuse Thomason’s work enable her broad and modern appeal, while a lifetime of study and tradition-bearing ensures that the deep cultural roots of her craft remain intact.
She is an NSN ORACLE Circle of Excellence award recipient.
Dovie will be introduced on the evening by storytelling legend Liz Weir MBE.
