A remarkable fairytale come to life from Turkish, Central Asian and Georgian sources. It is a journey of a prince and three princesses to repair the world and overcome monsters, dragons and the hunger of a beautiful mother eagle. The story centers on a tree in a special l garden that blooms three golden apples every year that could feed the entire world.
The Tree That Feeds the Heart of the World traverses two worlds beneath ours and returns again. It is a riveting story that has engaged audiences of every age throughout the world. It is a story for our times. This symbolic journey is nothing less than a secret instruction book of how to reconnect to the natural world and restore a potent sustainable source of joy and energy. There are two brothers who betray the youngest son, and the story’s solution to their wicked deeds is transforming their lives rather than punishment.
About Story Time: Tales on Sugar Hill
Story Time: Tales on Sugar Hill is a series of curated programs that aim to provide children with a meaningful, interactive and fun art experience. Grounded in our curatorial mission to share stories through theater, music, dance and visual art, as well as oral and literary forms, Story Time presents tales, fables, histories, and myths that genuinely reflect the diverse ethnic and cultural milieu of our surroundings. Story Time also leverages the Museum’s own art exhibitions to foster richer engagement with, and a deeper understanding of, public art already on view. Held every second Saturday of each month, each two-hour presentation includes a participatory art activity facilitated by teaching artists from the community, so children not only experience others’ stories, but also reflect on what they see and hear, and create and share their own stories.
