Bone Song is a story telling collective creatively directed and orchestrated by storyteller Jade Moon. Each story is woven with creative responses from a variety of artists, much like a tapestry studded with glittering beads.
"A rich and creative collaboration - thought provoking, evocative and beautifully crafted."
Bone Song tellings are active explorations of fairytales through the creative pathways of word eating, poetic pouring, harmonious vibration of the vocal cords, the plucking of strings, the blowing of wind and the hitting of taught skins.
Singing to the bones of a story much like La Loba of mexican tale...
"She comes to us through sound as well; through music which vibrates the sternum, excites the heart; it comes through drum, the whistle, and the cry. It comes through the written and the spoken word; sometimes a word, a sentence or a poem or a story, is so resonant, so right, it causes us to remember, at least for an instant, what substance we are really made from, and where is our true home"
Clarissa Pinkola-Estes, Women Who Run With the Wolves.
