Mara Menzies: Her mother gives her stories that enable her to navigate a voyage of self-discovery | The Fountain
Ancient mythology and modern storytelling collide in a contemporary exploration of the legacy of colonialism and slavery by award-winning Scottish Kenyan storyteller Mara Menzies. Her show, Blood and Gold, showing at the Fringe this August concentrates on a dying mother who gives her daughter a box containing three clues to a priceless treasure. This sets in motion a journey filled with humour and tragedy that considers the importance of ritual, identity and belonging. The Fountain spoke with Mara about the premise and her plans for the Fringe.
