Travel along with Kenyan-born storyteller Mara Menzies, as she enthralls audience members with stories from her rich dual heritage. Her inimitable physical and interactive style has garnered a following from Russia to Singapore, Nigeria, Denmark, and Scotland, where she also lives. She is the founder of the Kwale Sculpture Park and Heritage Trail, a unique social project in Kenya where culture, heritage, and stories are the basis for regenerating a rural community. “Mara’s story built in a carefully-controlled crescendo, whipping the audience into a quite astonishing frenzy of excitement….at one point almost every single person in the auditorium jumped out of their seat with pure rapture.” – Director, Edinburgh International Book Festival.
