Book: Where Seas and Fables Meet
Book Synopsis: This powerful, beautiful book blends parables, aphorisms, dreams, fantasies, anecdotes, witticisms, puns, vignettes, and prose poems in a meditative and often passionate way. It takes the risk of being free in its style and form, to affirm the possibilities of thought, spirit, heart, humour, and imagination. Here B.W. Powe gives us his boldest, most soul-revealing work to date.
Act: StorySlide is an improvised onstage narrative, told by three StorySliders, built around a random sequence of visuals and sounds.
