We have discovered a fabulous new venue for testing our new Kamishibai storytelling: the Captain’s Cabin in the stunning wooden warship Unicorn docked along from the Discovery and the new V&A in Dundee. Maria and I and the Kamishibai spent a Saturday there last Christmas opening a treasure chest glittering with sea stories. Santa Claus did get to row aboard in one of them, but, in the main, lighthouses, sieves, seals and fish featured heavily, for a change at that time of the year! We learnt a lot about the boat as well, which is definitely food for another whole show. A 200 year old boat has gathered a lot of stories – we will be back to tell them as soon as we can without a doubt!
A few words from our hosts:‘As my first encounter with Kamishibai storytelling, I cannot wait for continuing our collaboration between HMS Unicorn and We Three Stories. I loved the energy and enthusiasm that Maria and Harriet bring to the event. The captivating storytelling and enacting leads to an active participation from the audience. We are looking forward to having you on board soon!’Thank you so much for your hospitality, Billy Rough, Andrea and Lucy! http://www.frigateunicorn.org/
