Are things as they always appear? If something is something, can it be another something? Do my eyes deceive me? Does the first bite give you the whole taste? Can “they” bring you down or can you rise above? Using world folktales, fables and a smattering of personal stories, our team of local and world-class storytellers gives you something to think about this World Storytelling Day, all with Spring just around the corner. Discussion with Q&A follows.

StoryRise is a 90-minute fringe-theater, house-concert style performance and discussion. Join us for this outdoor event in a working garden. Suggested donation is $8. Your donation offsets costs for storytellers and for the Boon Garden expenses. Thanks in advance.

Event is outdoors in a working garden. Bring on the sensible shoes. Dress for Arizona Spring, right?

Refreshments available for purchase.

Get There:
Here’s the Map. Take the i-10 freeway to Litchfield Road. Go South on Litchfield to WESTERN Ave. Western Ave is about 1/4 mile north of Buckeye. Western Ave has a traffic light. Turn EAST onto Western Ave. Boon Garden is at 214 W Western, so north side of the road, in a white building.

PARKING: Think downtown parking. So there are a variety of lots around and some on-street parking. Look for lots at CAREFirst Center just around the corner to the west and a gravel-field parking next to auto-shop (just to the east) in the same building as the check-cashing location. Please don’t block anyone’s gates. We invite you to carpool with others.
