Story Weavers is the professional performing arm of the Storytelling Association (Singapore). Kamini and Verena will be telling stories for adult audiences as part of the Story Weavers line-up comprising of only Professional Members of the Association.
For 'Winds of Change: Tales of Transformation from Around the World' Kamini will re-tell the Legend of Puteri Saadong. The mesmerizing and hypnotic Mak Yong dance form of Kelantan tells the story of Puteri Saadong. She was a real queen documented in the annals of history. Like all legends that have stood the test of time, hers combines fact with poisoned finger nails, golden hairpins that cause death and a mysterious disappearance.
Verena's story will take us to the souks of Arabia where a midwife rushes to attend to her duties and is forced to leave her pretty daughter alone at home. The girl's safety and chastity is threatened by a bandit who manages to enter her home. But we all know that there is more than one way to call out for help!
