2020 Summer Program

Long before modern media, long before there were books, storytellers travelled around the countryside and collected and told stories to entertain, to persuade, to teach. Cultures developed distinct customs.

Construct a travelling stage with props, actors, scenery and instruments to gather and entertain audiences. Hear stories from around the world. Learn ways to create stories, and to remember and tell stories. Draw the curtain on a way to learn about different cultures.

Entertain and be entertained by your group across digital connections that join ancient traditions.
