May Stories in the Round: Elaine Muray

May 27, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Elaine Muray integrates movement and narration to deliver stories from around the world, folk tales and personal stories.  She has performed at the Australian Storytelling Festival, Northlands Storytelling Conference, and Jemez Storytelling Festival.  In 2008 she was chosen to represent her peers in the 5-state Pacific Region at the National Storytelling Conference All Regions Concert.  Born in a small southwestern Pennsylvania town, she grew up listening to the stories of her community in her father’s barber shop, influenced by her extended family’s love of literature, oratory, movement and dance. Exposed to a performance by mime master Marcel Marceau in the 90’s, and then Tony Montanaro and Paata Tsikurishvili, she eventually convinced Tsikurishvili to work with her via his Synetic Theater in Washington, DC. Her most recent performances include storytelling tours for English immersion schools in Colombia, China, Korea, Chile, and Peru.  Her DVD, “Embodied & Enchanted” won the Storytelling World Resource Award in the DVD category.

Stories In The Round is a 10 session series at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Hagerstown, 13245 Cearfoss Pike (Salem Ave. extended) usually on the 4th Monday of the month, March thru December. Children 12 years & older welcome when accompanied by a parent or group leader.
