Edinburgh Fringe Festival Premiere
Enter a world where Gods feast, dance and wander through forests. Reaching into the pantheon of African Orishas (Yoruban mythology), performance storyteller Mara Menzies explores our relationship with truth, intention and powerlessness wrapped in the thin cloak of power.
A young man obsessed with joining the ranks of deities, seizes an opportunity to appease himself to the Gods. An innocent misunderstanding leads to disastrous consequences when seemingly justifiable actions are taken without full knowledge of the facts. Introducing the Orishas — Yemaja, Oya, Oshun, Elegba, Ochosi.
For ages 12+
