Mappa Mundi: An online storytelling adventure for the Being Human Festival

November 20 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

‘Here, I found beasts like minotaurs, useful for war’.

Let the twelve winds blow you to the far corners of the Earth; meet mermaids and mandrakes; and follow the trail of Adam’s burnt footprints all the way back to Eden.

Storyteller and medievalist Daisy Black takes you on a tour around the medieval map of the world.

A show full of marvels, saints and giants, heroes and devils, grisly cannibals and Norwegian skiers. Weaving together medieval maps and travel writing with oral storytelling, this show is your passport to visit the world as a fourteenth-century traveller.

Just watch out for the monsters lurking at the edges of the map…

This event will be streamed via YouTube Live and Facebook Live and will be available for up to 48 hours after the performance.
