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 ‘The Heart of Story’, StoryFest Online 2020 invites audiences to experience the power of stories and be inspired to build their own community as they listen to the messages at the core of stories.
Audiences will be delighted by Local Commissions – the Young Storytellers Showcase, ‘A Dance of Stories’ presenting emerging storytelling talents, and The Singapore Showcase, ‘The Heart of Story’ featuring local storytellers and familiar faces from the Singapore spoken word scene. As a participatory treat for all, enjoy their Family Shows with plenty of singalong stories and talking animals to look forward to!
Presentations by practitioners from Singapore will expose the audience to the different facets of storytelling – from exploring mandala storytelling methods, to devising your own personal narrative and discovering anthropomorphism in literature.
This year the festival explores the world of puppets with ‘A Puppeteer’s Journey’ – an interview celebrating a pioneer puppetry expert from Singapore. The Festival celebrates the spirit of ‘The Heart of Story’ with free online storytelling videos to inspire conversation, the sharing of spoken stories and the creation of a community that is actively engaged in oral tradition.
