Storyteller Donald Davis will have two shows this weekend.
Davis was emersed in the oral storytelling tradition growing up in the mountains of North Carolina. Today, he is considered by many to be the father of family tales and is one of the most sought-after storytellers in the country.
The first event will be part of the Storytelling Arts of Indiana series, where he will tell “Come Home with Me” March 18, 8-10 p.m. at the Indiana History Center, 450 W. Ohio St. Davis will share his universal stories of family, neighbors and growing up. Tickets are $18/advance, $21/door.
The next day, March 19, Storytelling Arts of Indiana and St. Luke’s United Methodist Church Spiritual Life Center combine to present Davis, a retired Methodist minister, telling “Walking Around Inside the Biblical Stories” from 1:30–3 p.m. at St. Luke’s, 100 W. 86th St. Davis pairs his own contemporary story to a story from the Bible and in the telling, the audience awakens to their personal stories. In that moment, the true meaning of parable is rediscovered. Tickets are $10/advance, $12/door.
