On Saturday, October 20at 5:30 pm on the Dunseith Property, Route 6 and North Street, the Mattapoisett Land Trust offers a unique story teller, Danny Dullea, for their annual “Salty Silvery Moon Soiree” celebration with a fire to make s’mores.
Danny Dullea’s stories, he said “are about Environmental Justice to honor the beauty and integrity of complex associations of the flora and fauna of healthy ecosystem.” Dullea is one of only a few professional storytellers who focus on tales that illuminate the human/environment relationship, natural history, and wilderness.
Dullea believes in relating timeless human values with modern life and his tales are first and foremost that of one who “spins the yarn”.
Dan Dullea, a retired Director of Creative Media for Clarkson University, Potsdam NY, is a performance storyteller, actor, and civic media filmmaker. He tells stories to countless people at festivals, fairs, conferences, colleges, schools, parks, and campgrounds, throughout New York State and other locales.
Dullea and his wife, Marianne, travel to Ireland each year where he says, with his experience, “his story telling has become one of humanity’s oldest communal activities linking us with the past as we contemplate the future”.
Come and enjoy Dan Dullea’s “Tales of the Anthropocene” meaning how human activity dominates the environment. You will be spellbound by his hilarious engaging storytelling of dreams and culture. You will also be treated to a cook fire and s’mores.
