This performance, Storytelling Evening is going to explore how “Speaking” a story can effect the ways many different individuals experience or feel by “Listening”. When spoken words draw a group into a story of characters or situations and places, do speaker and the listener shift from the here and now to the space being created by spoken words, or are we in two places at the same time.

Can we feel the pain, anger, love, hope or despair and desires from the story we hear? Or are we projecting our own inner emotions onto the imaginary contours of the story and claiming it as our own story through understanding and acceptance? And who does the story belong to once it’s been spoken, the one who was telling it or to those who by hearing change the way they feel.

The ancient art of storytelling has been helping us explore our feelings, beliefs, morals and the world around us since humans were able to speak. It has given the human brain a portal to universe that is the human mind, helped shape our dreams and ideals and even given us the right to bear wittiness and give testimony to create rule of law.
