Slovenian Storytelling Night
Here is an irresistible invitation to you from international storyteller, soundscape artist and singer, Ljoba Jence. This is an incredible never-to-be repeated opportunity to explore the magic and wonder of Slovenian story and sound from the exquisite collection accumulated over three decades by Ljoba …
“Come and sit by my fire and listen to the well of Slovenian stories and songs.
Listen to the sound of singing stones from the most beautiful turquoise Soča river and the message of Goldhorn’s treasures from Triglav mountain!
Or maybe you would rather hear Slovenian version of Eros and Psyche…or…a myth how God one day went to swim in the sea as the day was so hot that he could not stand the heat anymore”
Slovenia lies on the sunny side of the Alps and is becoming the No. 1 tourist destination in Europe renowned for its diversity in nature and quiet, peaceful culture and healthy environment. A country of two million people who speak Slovenian it still has in its cultural heritage about 50 dialects.
Such a small community has a rich national archive of oral tradition which Ljoba Jenče explores, collects on her own and has safeguarded for more than thirty years.
In 1993 she attended the International Storytelling Symposium at Emerson College in England with Ashley Ramsden as a leader and others and from then on she has run her Institute for Sustainable Living PAJN with Storytelling Symposias, such as the one on Parzival in 2013.
Ljoba is deeply connected with the process of transmitting intangible cultural heritage to the younger generation and has been awarded a medal by the President of Slovenia in 2015 and with special mention of the jury of Europa Nostra Awards in 2017.
We will celebrate this amazing Slovenian storytelling night with a delicious Slovenian Supper.
