An Evening of Storytelling with

Mara Menzies (Scotland/Kenya)

Mara is a narrative artist, drawing on her rich, dual Kenyan/Scottish cultural heritage, to create worlds that explore contemporary issues through legend, myth and fantasy. With her own vision of the beauty, history and aspirations of people of African heritage, she fuses ancient and modern in an intoxicating experience where the audience takes centre stage leading to invitations to perform across the world and to create bespoke stories for those who dare to step into the world of fantasy.

Storytelling is one of the most powerful platforms from which to explore the complex and difficult issues that affect us all using humour, power, kindness, without fear of judgement.

We are delighted to welcome Mara to YARN and are thrilled that she will be introduced on the evening my storytelling legend Liz Weir.
