Event description

Description

Storytellers' Camp is an intensive journey deep into the traditions and contemporary expressions of storytelling. Louise Profeit-LeBlanc gathers the group into the culminating day of community building through storytelling. Please see the Day 3 Schedule below.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions? Please email festivaloperations@storytellingtoronto.org if you have any questions about tickets.



Day 3 Schedule:

9:00 AM - 11:30 AM: The Elements of Storytelling: Water, Earth, Fire and Air

This workshop brings the four natural elements of the world into our stories to extrapolate these teachings systematically from any story, including the story of our own life. Participants are invited to bring their own story, or one will be provided to work with, to develop new pieces using the four elements to improve a once familiar story.

12:00 PM - 1:15 PM: International Storytalk - Who Can Tell?

Ron Evans and Jenny Blackbird, with moderator Dan Yashinsky, discuss who can tell Indigenous stories. Ron Evans carries the oral traditions of his Metis and Chippewa-Cree ancestries. Jenny Blackbird, Nehiyaw/Finnish Canadian (Kehewin Cree Nation, Alberta), was born in Alberta, but raised in Tsi Tkaronto / Dish With One Spoon Territory. Dan Yashinsky is a founder of Storytelling Toronto and the Toronto Storytelling Festival.

Peter Chand and Pavan Chand - "In the Mix" (Part 2 of a two-day workshop): Renowned storyteller Peter Chand and music producer PKCtheFirst share some of the techniques they employed creating their performance piece “Tongue Tied & Twisted,” incorporating live storytelling, music mixing and soundscapes.
