THE BLUE SALT ROAD - Live Selkie Storytelling - August 29th 7pm

Post by Shandon Loring »

Presented Live in Voice
"passion and loss, love and violence"
A stunning tale of love, loss and revenge, against a powerful backdrop of adventure on the high seas, and drama on the land. The Selkie continues to try to fit in, his father-in-law takes him under wing on the whaling boat by the name of The Kraken and it takes them out to go hunting whales and other sea creatures. The Selkie fails miserably, and even intentionally fails to kill a whale, resulting in the sinking of a whaling skiff and killing a couple men for which he is flogged and stuck in the brig. In retrospect he decides he would do it all over again and wonders if he’s a monster for betraying his own kind, because he thinks humans are his own kind since he has no memory. In fact the selkies only true friend in the world is the pretty grey seal girl that he left behind so so long ago. As he sits in the brig overnight on the whaling ship, he begins to weep and five tears fall into the ocean… the magic formula for calling up a selkie. And his friend the grey seal girl comes to him, hides her seal skin, and sneaks aboard the ship and visits her friend, our friend, and promises to help him.
