It seems impossible but Christmas is almost here. As you can see from the picture above there is no snow and the lake which is home to the 2 women has no hint of ice. We believe this is by far the latest freeze up on Taylor Lake since we arrived here, over 20 years ago now.
2wp's most recent event, Two Women of the Odyssey told by Jan Andrews, was a great success. We were thrilled to work with Mill St Books and the Almonte branch of the Mississippi Mills Public Library on this project. The house was full to bursting and in fact there were people who had to be turned away. We very much look forward to doing more storytelling at the Almonte library and will let you know when this is going to happen.
This fall has also seen the beginning of a partnership with one of the area's most exciting artistic communiities, Fieldworks. Four storytellers will be seeking out traditional folk and fairy tales that seem in some way to belong in that special piece of the Ottawa Valley that is Fieldwork's home. As well, tellers will be exploring the work and creative process of the 2106 Fieldwork visual artists to see what inspiration can be found there. This project will culminate in a performance in the Fieldwork barn in September.
Please get in touch if you have any ideas for storytelling projects you would like to see 2 women productions undertaking in the future.
