SOMETHING HAS TO HAPPEN
presents 'Blood and Gold' - by Mara Menzies
Ancient mythology and modern storytelling collide in a contemporary exploration of the legacy of colonialism and slavery by award-winning Scottish Kenyan storyteller Mara Menzies.
A dying mother gives her daughter a box containing three clues to a priceless treasure. This sets in motion a journey filled with humour and tragedy that considers the importance of ritual, identity and belonging.
'A glittering, beautiful and disturbing one-hour monologue by one of Scotlands leading theatre artists of African heritage'- The Scotsman
'an exquisite piece of storytelling performed with choreographic grace and a mesmerising delivery'- The Guardian
Mara is an award-winning Kenyan/Scottish performance storyteller who draws on her rich cultural heritage to create beautiful, glittering, disturbing performance art. Carefully curated narratives that inspire and enrich through the ancient art of connecting profoundly to the audience.
