Storytelling evening at the Richmond Centre d’Art

By Gordon Lambie

This Friday, storyteller and harpist Julie Miller is inviting people out to the Centre d’Art in Richmond for a night exploring two tales of survival. “Resilience: East to West” is an evening of story and song featuring Miller’s take on myths and legends out of Japan as well as the real historical figure of Isabel Haldane, a Scottish revolutionary.
“It about exploring what happens when you’re in a very dark place and you get out of it, and you survive,” the storyteller said, explaining that she built the two stories she will be telling around research she did for an earlier storytelling evening. “I’ve been wanting to explore stories about courage and what people do when pushed to their limits,” she added.” Miller counseled people not tom come expecting a “humour night” but also said that she has done her best to make sure the sometimes challenging stories have some levity. “It just so happens that both stories are about war and about the aftermath of war and the trauma it can cause,” she said, adding that the program will be a “full evening.” See full story in the Wednesday, Nov. 13 edition of The Record.
