Around the World in 80 Tales: Winter Tales

Kay Mercer —

Stories from many Cultures: Saturday 3rd July, 11.15am City Library

We invite you to bring the whānau and celebrate Dunedin’s rich culture with us. Winter Tales may take you to warmer climes, or colder, as we share stories from eight different countries, told by Dunedin folk with ancestors from overseas.

With performances by the O Taiko drummers, Kiribas Dancers, and a French puppet show performed by Kaitrin McMullan and Shelly, you can enjoy music, dance and stories told in languages from far away, with translations in NZ Sign Language and English.

Warm your heart and broaden your horizons as you learn and celebrate difference.
