First tellings at the Puppet Festival

‘Animating’ the djinns at The Village Storytelling Centre as our little show reaches its climax! We’ve done three performances so far, and our skills in getting the trolleys on and off buses are growing exponentially. Its been fascinating how different audiences bring such different atmospheres to the tellings, and so far Dagba has stood up well to audiences from 10 to 3 year olds – Faced with a roomful of toddlers for our 5 plus show Maria and I decided not to compromise and see what unfolded: storytelling itself is such a primal thing it seems to touch the heart whether or not the language is at ‘the right level’ – and luckily we seemed to get away with it!!
