Dublin Yarnspinners Present Monique Burg

Thursday April the 12th, Club na Muinteoiri, 36 Parnell Sq. 8.00pm

 

Dublin Yarnspinners have a surprise special guest this Thursday evening instoryteller Monique Burg, who is visiting Ireland at the moment. Monique was born in Perigord (Southwest France), where she currently lives. She spent some time in England where she trained as an actress. She works for the theatre, the radio and does public readings and dubs films and cartoons in Occitan - one of Europe’s precious ‘minority languages.’ She is astoryteller with a repertoire of traditional tales from her culture and other cultures as well as her own personal creations.
Nothing New
A hungry servant, a humiliated peasant woman, a boy for hire, a cart filling up with sun, a village hesitating between tradition and modernity, and there you have a picture of Perigord!
“Monique Burg has the magical power to take us instantly to another world, where wonder and humour always rely on a very fine analysis of people and situations.”
