A statue of Ganesh in RAMM’s World Cultures gallery has inspired one of the performances in Telling Our Stories, Finding Our Roots, an evening of storytelling at Exeter Phoenix this Wednesday 5 June.
Part of the Exeter Ignite Theatre Festival, the true stories and traditional tales in Telling Our Stories, Finding Our Roots are based on interviews and new research into Exeter’s multicultural history by volunteers in an HLF funded history project by the same name.
The performance inspired by Ganesh shows how Exeter’s global links have changed and how fresh perspectives can bring new life to museum objects.
The performance starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £6 (concessions £4). Visit the Exeter Phoenix website for more information.
