Marvelous Maidens, Incredible Crones: Stories of Women Wise and Bold
Long before computers, video games, or even books, people told stories. Stories are the world’s oldest and most effective tool for teaching and communicating since they enter our heart by engaging our imagination. In this dynamic assembly, Noa invites students to listen deeply, imagine, connect, and discover exceptional women from history, folklore, and her life who use their wit, wisdom, spirit, and strength to accomplish great deeds.
"Noa is fantastic! She brings her stories alive so that this petite woman actually resembles a lion, a turtle--actually any character she takes on, when performing--without costume! I cannot say enough about Noa--the teachers, staff and most importantly the students were captivated by her storytelling."
"Noa was warm and engaging. She established immediate rapport with the audience, giving clear cues for decorum, but lots of space for appropriate response and participation. Her stories were mesmerizing, her timing impeccable, and her connection with the children genuine. Loved her!"
"I appreciated the diverse nature of the stories Noa told both at the performance and on her CD. She brought in elements of the cultures that the stories sprang from and made the stories come alive with her dramatic telling of them. Noa is truly an exceptional performer."
