On Saturday June 11, 2011 at 5PM the Charleston Jung Society presents an evening of storytelling. The program will focus on the exploration of the unconscious through the power and experience of storytelling and will feature a storytelling performance by the nationally acclaimed Gullah storyteller, Sharon Cooper-Murray.
The program will take place at the Unitarian Church, 4 Archdale Street, Charleston, in Gage Hall.
Admission is $10 for members, $20 for non-members and $15 for students. The doors open at 4:30 and the program will begin at 5:00. Light refreshments will be served.
Sharon Cooper-Murray, also known as The Gullah Lady-Ambassador of the Gullah Culture, is a nationally recognized story teller who has performed in numerous venues across the country–including an appearance at the at the 2010 National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee. A Professional Storyteller and Playwright, Sharon Cooper-Murray has performed before thousands of people over the last decade and a half. She has worked for clients across the country, including The National Park Association, Sea Island Cultural Arts Festival, Penn Center Heritage Day Festival, The Piccolo Spoleto Festival, Middleton Place Plantation & Gardens, The Ingersoll Rand and numerous South Carolina Schools.
Ms. Cooper-Murray’s performances in Gullah capture the West African rhythm and grammatical structure that have evolved into a Creole language composed of up to 109 African languages and dialects. The experience of listening to stories told in that language provides a unique vehicle for exploring Carl Jung’s ideas of accessing material in the unconscious through the lived experience of storytelling.
