Performing Arts- Storytelling
Starting with a folk tale from the small island nation of Haiti, I will take students on an imaginary journey across the Atlantic, where they will meet characters commonly found in European and African folklore. We will continue our journey around the globe, with a stop in Asia, then the South Seas and finally back home to the United States. As we travel, we will talk about why people tell stories, and explore why similar stories appear in a different cultures around the world. During the 30-60 minute concert (program length and repertoire adjustable to suit your scheduling and curricular needs), listeners will be active participants in the program, both as an audience who delights in the magic of stories and songs from such a wide variety of cultures, and as “explorers” who help me answer questions about the tradition of storytelling and the stories themselves. At turns hilarious and serious, Story Laurie magically glides from one character to the next, employing her marvelous vocal skills, gestures and facial expressions. Perfect for libraries, schools and community events -- Laurie has a knack for enchanting both young and old equally!
