“It has been said that next to hunger and thirst, our most basic human need is for storytelling.” —- Khalil Gibran, author, poet
Humans have always been storytellers. From the first paintings on cave walls, we have sought to communicate what we hope and fear, what we long for and search for. From oral to visual to written forms, storytelling is many things. It can be a form of self-expression or identification. We tell friends about things we’ve done or seen. Even reading or watching movies is an interpretive experience, when characters reflect some hidden corner of ourselves or remind us of a friend.
But storytelling has always been a communal experience. Stories link us to the past and give us visions of the future. They remind us of our origins, of how much has changed, and how much has remained the same. Most importantly, they remind us of the human story: we may come from different corners of the globe, but we are more alike than we are different. We are connected to one another.
Pippa White One Company honors the need for storytelling that brings us together and keeps the past alive. Pippa White breathes to life the voices of strong women, orphan children, and brave reformers who faced challenges that shaped them and their world. She invites us to step outside of ourselves and to engage in the past.
Stories string us to the past in living, pulsing threads. To see Pippa White perform is to see her weave these threads into an unforgettable experience that remains with viewers long after the lights have dimmed. Step into the past with Pippa White One Company and experience entertainment that fosters contemplation. Rediscover the joys and sorrows of sitting with the stories of people you have never met, but whose footsteps ring clearly for those with a listening ear.
