On the Heels of the Unicorn Theatre: Post Show thoughts
It was a wonderful week at the Unicorn Theatre, Tooley St, London, last
week. The theatre was a beautiful space for storytelling, seating
about 100 people. The shows were well sold and comprised of families
and adults. It was mid term which meant that there was no filling the
seats with captive audiences of classes from schools.… Continue

Seeing storytellers appear in online video isn't necessarily new... but with so many video sharing sites and so many online video formats, there was never one place to see storytellers tell their stories online.
Even the YouTube storytelling channel
, a well-kept secret for many years (you'd think that after Google bought YouTube, that Google might be able to FIND a channel on its own property to list in its search… Continue

I've just returned from working at Colchester Castle Museum in Essex where I have been busy telling medieval tales all week. Five sessions a day with over fifty people at each session. It was a popular event and was planned to run along side a temporary exhibition of medieval artifacts at the castle. In particular a carved corbel of a very merry monk caught my eye and I've written about it on my … Continue

“The Frog and the Antelope” is a Native American story from the Kootenai (or Kootenay) tribe about a race between, appropriately enough, a frog and an antelope. It's one of many such race tales from many different races of human being, such as Aesop's “The Tortoise and the Hare”. In this case, however, the race is won by trickery rather than pluck and perseverance, so perhaps it doesn't illustrate very sportsmanlike conduct. On the other hand, the trickery is used to give a braggart his… Continue

I contribute blogs now and then to Storytelling Arts of Indiana. Here is my entry for February.
Small storytelling guilds were very helpful to me when I was learning the ropes. I have been making an effort to keep that tradition going in Central Indiana.
A nod and a wink to all of you out there who keep the fire buring.

Doing the background research for a storytelling event on the Osage tribe around the period of Chief Tal-lee (Catlin Collections), for a learning center. This will be a great way to begin my own storytelling journey. The first event is with a local sponser who asked me to do an event and has offered media coverage as well as web site development. The stories will be around winter season; therefore, I'm working on a story of my own while at the same time looking over other material and authors I… Continue

Greetings from the Suncoast of Florida!
While much of the country has been buried under a blanket of snow and ice for much of the past month, we for the most part have been enjoying much warmer temperatures. We took advantage of the climate and the ecosystem by hiking and camping in the Everglades, including a “slough slog”, wading (under the guidance of a couple of park rangers) in knee-deep water through terrain that few people explore. We also took a canoe excursion to one of… Continue

In the spirit of European storytelling, Languages, Cultures, Fun, and most of all Tricksters, two storytellers decided to embark on a magical journey, following the footsteps of the Monkey King!
We designed a trilingual Swedish-English-Hungarian storytelling project, and for the first step we created a blog:

As we read the book we are going to post out ideas, thoughts, musings,… Continue
