PROGRAM INFORMATION

More information

Since the beginning of time, human beings have told the story of their own beginning, and of the origins of the four directions, the heavens,the God-People, the earth, and all its creatures. The Navajo People tell a story of great psychological power and depth.


First recorded by 19th century ethnographers, the Navajo Creation story is here interpreted as an epic-length poem.


Jabez L. Van Cleef has written poetic versions of spiritual texts from all of the world's great religious traditions. His voice in dramatic readings explores the fine distinctions between metered prose and music, by creating a spoken word sound environment that lulls the listener into a state of profound receptivity.
