STORYTELLING SWAPS IN CHINA
But the most exciting experience will be visiting the storytelling village of Gengcun. There, a plethora of tales and myths will await you in amidst a tradition so grand, that researchers have deemed this rural farm community “An Ocean of Stories.” Join us as we share, swap, and exchange our stories with over 100 mid-level to master tellers, some of whom know upwards of 500 stories! Share with the people of China the of who we are, not just as Americans, but as Global Citizens who love storytelling.
KOREA! … ANOTHER STORYTELLING ADVENTURE: Following the 10 day Chinese storytelling adventure, we will travel to Korea to explore storytelling and story-based performing arts of this northern land. Meet with storytellers, hear their traditions, and engage in community activities in schools, community centers and cultural institutions.
