"Mother Night and the Book of Dreams," a performance intended to explore the world of dreaming, is set for 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 26 at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 2945 NW Circle Blvd. in Corvallis.
The performance, billed as an evening of myth, storytelling and music, features national and regional storytellers spinning old and new tales that revolve around dreams. Award-winning storyteller Will Hornyak will be joined on stage by mythologist Matt Cochran and regional storytellers Chris Neely and Carol Freya Soth.
The evening's soundtrack will be created by Mack Powers, whose mixed beats and tunes are intended to create a dreamy soundscape.
