Tales of Transformations and Dreams—an NEA Big Read event

A performance by storyteller “Oasis” Darryl Hasten


Thursday, October 25, 2018, 6-7 pm

With fifty years of experience as storyteller, actor, dancer, and human performance artist, “Oasis” Darryl Hasten journeys the realm of story, metaphor, and parable (Real Estate Magazine). Tales of Transformations and Dreams will celebrate the tradition of “fantastic tales” as shown in the 2018 NEA Big Read selection Pretty Monsters by Kelly Link.

Mr. Hasten’s performance will include White Seal Maid, (Jane Yolen); The Dream of Chuang, (Wm. Kotzwinkle); The Man Who Knew His Birds (Wm. Kotzwinkle); Tale of the Sands (Indries Shah Collection) and Poetry  Selections.

“A delight to all who know him, “Oasis” Darryl Hasten, one of the north coast’s premiere storytellers brings his background as a dancer, and actor into his sporadic plunges into the morass of poetry possibilities. He savors the freedom to express the range of his own expressions in spontaneous soundings; vigorous vocalizations of auditory art.” Arts Council of Mendocino
