Tales of Hidden Bulgaria, by a Spell In Time
Within the fragrant forests and beautiful mountains of Bulgaria lies a hidden world of ancient myth and folklore – a world of seductive shape-shifting dragons, wild nature nymphs who can heal or harm, and giant-hearted heroes.
Bulgaria’s traditional tales are magical and deliciously dark. They have ancient origins and are largely unknown in the West. Archetypal characters, thrilling narratives and exquisite imagery conjure the intense world of dream and a mythic age of long ago when anything was possible. Beautifully atmospheric and profoundly entertaining, they cross the boundaries of space and time to speak to the heart, mind and soul.
A Spell In Time is a unique British-Bulgarian storytelling company that brings Bulgaria’s extraordinary myths and folk tales to English-speaking audiences for the first time. Formed in 1995 by storyteller, Moni Sheehan, who is half-Bulgarian, and musician, Ivor Davies, the Company’s work is based on authentic stories translated from old and dialect Bulgarian. With a spellbinding mix of traditional storytelling, evocative music and fascinating folklore, the Company has gained acclaim in the UK and abroad for its passionate and poetic performances.
