UPCOMING EVENT
JUNE 2024

Location: De Gouden Leeuw, Tresoar, Ljouwert

Theme: Restorying of traditional tales

The story of ‘De Wylde Boerinne’, the wild farmer’s wife, has been retold in a variety of ways for over a century. What is it about this story that still speaks to people? What choices are made in restorying the original story, and what effect does this have?

Sit down with us to have the opportunity to partake in an inspiring session on restorying traditional tales, such as turning a story into a theatre play, or even an escape room! Interested? Register now by sending a message to lingotell@fryske-akademy.nl!
