Scottish International Storytelling Festival

Mid way through the festival and it has been an inspiring few days. The theme was Eastern Routes and we have had storytellers from as far afield as Thailand, Singapore and China. I am always amazed at the different styles and techniques used by the storytellers, in the most surprising ways. The Ramayana in 15minutes is a definite feat. Also to meet Kamini who I was not able to get in touch with while in Singapore earlier this year was a real treat.
Long may it continue.

I'm like a Child With a New Birthday Present

I expect they'll get all the jokes, as well as all the nuances that sometimes get lost in translation. I realise that there will be people from N.Ireland there as… Continue

While a Group could easily be started here (international groups are very active here), not everyone loving storytelling in Michigan feels comfortable on a network aimed at the "Professional Storyteller" even though this network welcomes beginners to storytelling. For that reason… Continue

Blixen on the waterfront

How wonderful it is to work with great stories.



On the 10.10.10 at 10 a beautiful new venue opened its doors to a very special place. The new Cultural house and Library in Helsinore lies just across from the castle of Kronborg - the home of Hamlet´s story.
