Presented by The Storytelling Centre Limited and The Arts House, StoryFest is an annual festival that celebrates and showcases a variety of styles, repertoire and cultural arts presentations of storytelling from Singapore and around the world. With the theme of ‘Make Believe’, StoryFest 2019 invites audiences to be open to new experiences and to allow their imagination to soar as they listen to stories that are beyond belief.
Our Asian premieres present the epic poem of Gilgamesh, the life story of Frida Kahlo as well as Celtic and Italian legends. Family audiences will be delighted by South American jungle folktales and partake in storytelling with music.
The festival features local commissions – the Young Storytellers Showcase ‘The Wings of Love’ presenting emerging storytelling talents, and The Singapore Showcase ‘Make Believe’ featuring storytelling and spoken word artists.
Through workshops and masterclasses by practitioners from Singapore and global experts, participants can identify the various ways of using applied storytelling in their daily life or in their work space.
This year the festival explores visual storytelling through a curated exhibition that encourages audiences to actively make meaning for themselves through the artworks.
The festival celebrates the spirit of ‘Make Believe’ with free community engagement activities to inspire conversation, the sharing of spoken stories and creation of visual stories – all programmed to get audiences off their digital devices.
2019 marks the third edition. For more info on the full programme, click on the link provided below.
