StoryFest 2019 : Make Believe
June 21 - June 24
To see the world through stories, on the wings of ‘Make Believe’ … take the kids !!
With twenty two programmes, this year’s StoryFest (an annual festival that celebrates and showcases a variety of styles, repertoire and cultural arts presentations of storytelling from Singapore and around the world) adopts the theme of ‘Make Believe’, inviting audiences to open themselves to new experiences and give their imagination free rein as they listen to stories that are beyond belief.
Children and families can experience a whirlwind of storytelling programmes and related activities; they can step into the jungle and sail away on a canoe of animal tales; gather around an imaginary fire and help the storyteller with his stories; immerse themselves in a musical storytelling experience with Daniel Allison’s didgeridoo tunes and wacky tales.
There are 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 !!
In today’s world of instant moments #MakeBelieveSG is an invitation to slow down and consume tales of the past, told by the present, to understand our future.
The festival features local commissions – the Young Storytellers Showcase The Wings of Love presents emerging storytelling talents and The Singapore Showcase Make Believe features storytelling and spoken-word artists.
Once more, take the kids !!!
