Please join Mythteller Brian Rohr as we engage in one of the oldest acts known to humans: listening to the old stories as a community shared in the ways of the oral tradition.

In his performance, Calling Forth the Mythic Fire: An Evening of Wild Storytelling, Rohr invites the listener to follow the ageless wisdom inherent in the old stories. By calling on the mysterious energies of Grandfather Fire to hold this sacred evening, we may find ourselves being swept away to a time before time began. Utilizing the drum and the spoken word, Rohr helps us journey to a place where we ourselves live, breath and dance among the ancient tales.

About Brian:

“Sharing the ancient art of storytelling as a way to educate, entertain and offer healing to individuals, communities and the living world.”

Brian Rohr is a Storyteller, Poet and Healing Arts Practitioner who resides here in the Pacific Northwest, recently moving from Port Townsend, WA to Portland, OR.

In 2007 he met mythologist and master storyteller Daniel Deardorff whose artistry convinced him to give up the steady life and move to the small rural town of Port Townsend, WA, to be mentored in the art and magic of performative mythology and storytelling.

Since this time, Rohr has toured as a featured teller for national audiences, taught and performed at major conferences, festivals, high schools, universities, synagogues and libraries. The list includes: the 14th International Jewish Renewal Aleph Kallah; Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle; Illinois State University; Trickster Tales Storytelling Festival in Washington State; Tapestry of Jewish Learning in Austin, TX, the Puget Sound Mankind Project and more.
Rohr was recently named by JT News (the Jewish Newspaper of Washington State) as a “10 Under 40″ recipient for 2013 – Honored as one of ten notable Jewish people in Washington under 40 years old who are doing important and inspirational works within the community, specifically honored as a storyteller.

As a storyteller, Brian focuses on the old stories – the myths, folktales and fairy tales – from many different cultures, knowing that these old stories are alive, vital and can inform us on how to live our lives as authentic human beings, helping to make sense and meaning of the living world we are a part of.

Rohr is a member of the National Storytelling Network, the Healing Story Alliance, the Portland Storytellers Guild and the Jewish Storytelling Coalition.

“You’re helping to keep cultures and ancient tales rich and alive in an age of quick info and technology.”
– Joe Roche, Wrier, Actor, Humorist

“Thank you for your stories… You are a very passionate and gifted storyteller. I was moved, intrigued, and inspired by the folklore and how you weaved the story together. Each one resonates truth.”
– Eric J Jones. Sr.

“Brian breathes fire into the story and carries you to the belly of the beast. His energy catapults you right into the story and you find yourself riding along with the cast of characters. You can’t help but enjoy a storytelling by Brian.”
– Michele Podesto, Artist & Ritual Leader

    There are only a few things that really make me want to get out, and good storytelling is probably top amongst them. I’d love to get tickets to see this all-too-rare piece of well-done artistry.

    I’m really interested in myths and storytelling and how to use the structures of the past to tell good modern stories.

    Nothing beats storytelling for an intimate, human connection among former strangers. Stories bring us together with shared experiences, and we feel no longer like strangers, but fellow travelers. I would love to share this experience with my husband and the people in the room. It will be a profound and ultimately joyful experience.
