Agostino, Christopher Christopher Agostino's StoryFaces - Transformations Storytelling Multicultural- Other,
Nature- Animals,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Christopher Agostino’s StoryFaces is a very different kind of a show. Audience volunteers are brought on to the stage and facepainted very quickly to illustrate the stories he tells. The amazing facepainting holds kids attention while they listen to folktales from around the world and his original tales. With his extensive repertoire of stories he can perform successfully for any size audience and any age: kids, teens and adults. In most shows he paints 8 to 12 volunteers while mesmerizing the audience with a theatrical storytelling style and tales that range from the comic adventure of the first time a man met a crocodile to the heroic tale of the boy Punia and the King of the Sharks. Spoken word and painted faces combine in a unique performance art, as author and artist Christopher Agostino illuminates ancient traditions to completely engage modern audiences. It’s surprising and delightful theater for any age. Several themes are available and special shows can be crafted to feature specific cultures and special topics. Discounts available for libraries on certain dates. Learn more at: http://agostinoarts.com/StoryFaces See video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Snc0ndU-LBk
