Our first salon in this series will be a three-part conversation with storyteller, musician and poet David Gonzalez. David will perform a few short stories from around the world and walk us through some aspects of the craft of storytelling including Words, Voice, Movement and Imagination and, what he calls, “Technologies of Enchantment”. In part one Mr. Gonzalez will perform "Stories of the Guarani People", by Uraguayan author Eduardo Galeano. Joining David after the performance will be education students from Holly Fairbank's aesthetic education classes at CUNY's Hunter College and Borough of Manhattan (BMCC).
Part one of this Series will be launched on July 15th and will be available for viewing thereafter on our website.
Maxine was a big fan of David’s and described his performance in her book Variations on a Blue Guitar
“What we shared with David was an enactment of art-making - - someone raising up a world before our eyes through movement and the sound of his voice and the expressions of his face…and by means of my imagination I can make it my own.”
