  23. Fairy Tales for Adults

    January 27, 2018, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM @ DeKalb Public Library, Yusunas Meeting Room

    Ron Allison returns with a third installment of Fairy Tales for Adults! This time, he will be discussing a Scandinavian tale, The Serpent Prince, and Grimms’ The Gnome. Much like dream analysis, this approach posits the possibility of viewing the narratives as metaphorical of our own psychodynamics, particularly in regard to developmental struggles on the way to maturity. In addition to a tale’s entertainment value, the tale is psychodrama that everyone with the benefit of the life experience that accrues with adulthood can enjoy. The full resonance of the story is grasped through interactive dialogue between teller and audience. The audience is afforded the opportunity to locate themselves in situations presented in the narrative. This program is FREE and intended for adults. While children may be entertained by the telling segment of the event, the discussion following the story will be geared towards a more mature audience. No registration is required.
