Storytelling Performance

British Council, Bengaluru, invites you to a Storytelling Performance (for children aged 5 – 12 years)

Storytelling is the interactive art of using words and actions to reveal the elements and images of a story while encouraging the listener’s imagination. Storytelling involves a two-way interaction between a storyteller and one or more listeners. The responses of the listeners influence the telling of the story. In fact, storytelling emerges from the interaction and cooperative, coordinated efforts of teller and audience. Different cultures and situations create different expectations for the exact roles of storyteller and listener—who speaks how often and when, for example—and therefore create different forms of interaction.

The storytelling performance will be based on one of Roald Dahl’s famous books, Fantastic Mr Fox. It is about Mr Fox, who has to outsmart three farmers and steal from their farms to feed his family. The mean farmers are not the ones to take this lying down and they put up a fight to keep the wily fox from plundering them. Come, join us to find out how Fantastic Mr Fox uses all his cunning to fool the cruel farmers.

Age group: 5 – 12 years
Reg fee: Rs 200 per child
