the bold knight, the apples of youth and the water of life

Compelled amidst the confusion, conspiracy and urban legends to find and give voice to the archetypal and shared experiences, storyteller and graphic artist Maria Fedorova is soliciting lived anecdotes from life under lockdown to recast in the tradition of Russian folktales, the definitive collected and classified anthology explicitly modeled off of Grimm’s Fairy Stories. The first evening’s entertainment in this modern-day Decameron relates the dilemma of a woman wanting to rescue her neighbour stuck in her apartment building’s lift but is also terrified at the prospect of have to come within too close proximity with others during her intervention.
