Writing the Marvelous Real Workshop Description
We live by stories—our own and those of others, imagined and real. Stories are how we identify ourselves, share knowledge, dramatize and solve problems, and build community across the generations. We need stories and the creative process to maintain balance and to evolve. We need stories to grow and heal. Magical realism is a genre of stories in which the real and the fantastic, the ordinary and the extraordinary are merged. The storytelling treats the fantastic elements as normal, using vivid, rich descriptions, and bold, memorable characters, allowing the action and characters to unfold in a matter-of-fact way.

Magical realism, or more accurately, “the marvelous real” is a powerful genre that takes ordinary people and places them in extraordinary circumstances. First coined by the great Cuban novelist and musicologist, Alejo Carpentier (1904-1980) in his novel on the Haitian revolution, The Kingdom of This World, “magical realism” is actually a mistranslation of Carpentier's vision of "lo real maravilloso,” where realistic elements appear in an otherwise “magical” setting. The works of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Andrea Hairston, Kiini Ibura Salaam, Gloria Naylor, Helen Oyeyemi, Alice Walker, Arthur Flowers, Nalo Hopkinson, Kelly Link, Salman Rushdie, Laura Esquivel, Isabelle Allende, Jorge Luis Borges, Italo Calvino, Angela Carter, and numerous other slipstream storytellers are representative of this complex and exciting body of work we will explore in this workshop. Come prepared to read, discuss, and pen your own marvelous tales.

The event will be held on Wed., Sept. 27, 6:30 pm at Kumble Theater. For information call: 212-865-2982 or 718-488-1624 Free! Donations Welcomed!

Little Sallie Walker
Producer/Director: Marta Effinger-Crichlow
In Little Sallie Walker, Black women across the United States reflect upon their relationships with childhood play revealing how this ignored legacy helps them survive life in America. The title of the film is inspired by the classic follow-the-leader game "Little Sally Walker.” From big cities to rural hamlets, play like patty-cake, double-dutch, dress-up, hop-scotch, doll-making, and hide-and-go-seek help to paint an alternative picture of black women’s lives. Little Sallie Walker is a work-in-progress, please support the film at www.littlesalliewalker.com.
Marta Effinger-Crichlow (Producer/Director/Writer) is an interdisciplinary artist who uses film, theatre and literature as she focuses upon black women and girls and freedom and place. She is the author of Staging Migrations toward an American West: From Ida B. Wells to Rhodessa Jones (University Press of Colorado).

We close our season in majestic fashion with one of the great artists of our time, Senegalese singer YOUSSOU N'DOUR. Described as an "arresting tenor, with prophetic authority" (The New York Times) and "perhaps the most famous singer alive [in Africa]," (Rolling Stone) N'Dour helped develop mbalax, a propulsive, soulful genre of Senegalese music. At the age of 12, he began performing with the Star Band, one of Dakar's prominent bands of the early '70s, before going on to form his own Latin-influenced dance band, Étoile de Dakar, which properly launched his career as Senegal's first pop star. His world travels have included collaborations with Bruce Springsteen, Wyclef Jean, Paul Simon, and Branford Marsalis, among others.
N'Dour has a long history of activism and civic duty. In 1985, he organized a concert to free Nelson Mandela, and worked with UNICEF and the United Nations to open internet cafes across Africa and connect Senegalese communities worldwide. In recent years, he has served stints as both Senegal's Minister of Tourism and as Special Adviser to the President. We are honored to invite such an important musical mind and public figure to our stage. Malian kora master YACOUBA SISSOKO plays while the sun sets.
