StoryLab Presents Stories of Transformation

In conjunction with World Storytelling Day

We may not have the power to turn all frogs into princes (or princesses!), but the choices we make in life have the power to transform and define who we are. When it happens, will we like what we become? Will our personal transformations change our lives and our world for better, or for worse?

Other Events

The Indigo Jackal

Come snooping, sniffing and slinking into the wily Jackal’s world! Listen to the story of the cunning trickster and his most famous adventure. A sly tale from The Panchatantra retold by storyteller Kamini Ramachandran with visual puppets and lots of audience participation.

Followed by a simple craft activity to make your own Jackal character and bring him back home.

Recommended for family audiences 4 – 7 years old.
All children must be accompanied by an adult throughout the session.

In conjunction with World Storytelling Day, the House Party and Moonshadow Stories present Asian tales surrounding the theme of ‘transformations’.

Shapeshifter Stories

Who do you really see? Some of us hide our true skins when the light appears. Some of us have sold our souls for love and beauty. Some of us are being watched by those from another realm.

Asian folklore is rife with tales of transformation. Of mortals, animals and spirits that morph and mutate to pursue their desires and dreams. Look closer, look deeper, and perhaps you see the glimmer of claws or a single black paw. Tread where you should never, and find yourself trapped in a parallel sphere.

If you are interested in storytelling, but don’t know where to start; this workshop, facilitated by storytelling pioneer Sheila Wee, is for you. It will give you a firm grounding in storytelling skills and you will leave with one ready to tell story and the tools to learn and tell more stories. In a warm and supportive group environment, you will learn why storytelling is such a powerful form of communication; how stories can be structured to hook your listener’s attention and discover your own personal storytelling style. Through group, partner and individual exercises, you will be guided through a step-by-step method of learning to tell a story without memorizing the words. You will also discover how to add details to make the story uniquely yours, and learn story rehearsal and performance techniques.
