'Hi Lois: I just read your message for the first time tonight. Yes, I will put up some things on this site. You can see my puppet shows on Youtube Channel: Marc Kohler. There are also two videos of my puppet making workshops. You can read a draft of why Handbook of the Kohler Puppetry Method on my web site: marcwkohler.com at http://www.marcwkohler.com/introductory-handbook-to-kohler-puppetry-method/ thanks
Hi again Lois - In case you're interested, I'm doing a pre National Storytelling Week show to the SW of London at Riverhouse Arts Centre, Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, on Friday 29 January.
My actual National Storytelling Week performance in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, is a guest artist spot in a poetry open mic event at Smokey Joe's coffee bar on Thursday 4 February from 7pm. I think they're letting me do something like 2 x 20 minute spots.
The UK Society for Storytelling is a not for profit, non promoting, mostly non professional organisation. It does not organise or fund NSW events. The website provides a listing of storytelling activities throughout the UK, details submitted by individual organisers. There's also a page noting the dates of each year's NSW.
Media largely disregard storytelling except as children's entertainment.
Ahaaaaaa! Now I understand why I couldn't log in here - I used my Facebook profile, and not another mail address :-D Found the welcome mail in the mailbox that belongs to the Facebook mail address, which I NEVER (except today ;-) ) log in to. Best wishes <3 Neppe
Hi, Lois. This is George Williams ("Old Father William"). It's been a long time since I've been able to check in with PS... It seems likes it's really...slow. Anything happening that you know of? I'd like to reconnect with a storytelling board. If this isn't it, can you recommend one? Thanks...and Merry HannuChristKwnazaNess. <g>
Thank you Lois! Indeed the saying has done a great harm, by putting the total of the Greek oral culture in the same basket...but anyway, I am here now, at your service! I am now preparing a new performance with tales of the wine! Hopefully I will have a small video to upload....it will be in Greek though.:)
I replied to your private email also - but I think it might a ´´ no reply ´´ email! Anyway , hope that you get it. I love the mask pic. I trained with John Glennard and Ninian Kinnear Wilson ( founders of British Commedia ) in the Nineties in the North West of England. I love masks and maskwork , but , oddly , haven´t used them in telling hitherto.
Hello- I was not aware of the Arthur Waley version. But I do want to find a copy. Would you know a library that carries it? I plan to check the Main Branch of the Detroit Public Library the next time I am down there. Also, yes please introduce me to Michael! I would love to get his insights on those stories.
