Venue

Mercer Museum

In our special “Twilight Tales” series, local storytellers and spoken word artists perform in the dramatic atmosphere of the Mercer Museum’s Central Court.  Performances feature both traditional and original material, linked to the museum’s history and collections.

Playwright, songwriter, and storyteller Oni Lasana performs the dialect poetry of African-American writer Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906), in the second performance in our Twilight Tales series. Tailored to the setting, and illustrated with materials from the Mercer collection, her entertaining program offers a theatrical portrayal of Dunbar’s poems.  Lasana mixes humor, drama and an interactive storytelling style as she imagines and brings to life a character from one of Dunbar’s works. The program is followed by refreshments, an opportunity to meet the performer, and a chance to explore the museum.  The performance is appropriate for ages 8 and up.  Purchase tickets using the link below or by calling 215-348-9461.
