The week-long celebration of the arts at St
Peter’s Church in Belsize Square included Punch and Judy shows,
classical music, choral singing, late-night jazz, new drama,
dance, painting, poetry, and tales from ancient Mesopotamia
introduced and told by ZIPANG storyteller Fran Hazelton.
In the delightful Lady Chapel, the audience
learned to say the Sumerian word for “mysteries of everything”—me
(pronounced may). They heard and contributed to the
Sumerian story that tells how Inana, dingir of Unug, visited the
dingir Enki in Eridu and brought back the me to her
city in the Boat of Heaven, fighting off monsters sent from
Eridu to stop her.
