Outpost inaugurates a new storytelling series—StorySpace—with an evening organized by local storyteller and host of KUNM's Spoken WordHour, Ramona King. Work by local storytellers ranges from spellbinding musical theatrics of the heroine's journey in myth and legend to personal stories of courage, triumph and faith including that of a teen who takes us across the seas to envision a life on the streets.
Ramona King, who has performed at the White House, uses movement, song and age old wisdom “to inspire families to connect with heartfelt desires, ambitions and dreams for a fulfilled and harmonious life driven by love.
