Northeast Storytelling Announces Keynote and Sunday Performer for STF 2018
Keynote – Tim Tingle – award-winning storyteller and author will share insights into authenticity – insights gained as an Oklahoma Choctaw whose ancestors walked the Trail of Tears. Tim tells the tales in the tradition of his elders, with respect, truthfulness, and generosity. In his book, Walking the Choctaw Road, he shares “stories woven from the supernatural, mythical, historical and oral accounts of Choctaw people living today.”
His new projects range widely from a 45-minute solo performance on the Irish Famine, in which no one had to die to a piece on the murder of Mississippi civil rights workers to “Viet Nam”, a stream of consciousness with music and dance.
We are so glad that Tim will be with us at Sharing the Fire 2018.
Sunday Performer – Motoko – on Sunday morning, Motoko will present her new, powerful multimedia performance, “Radiant: Stories from Fukushima,” in which she draws on true events to portray three mothers during the first five years since the nuclear meltdown as they struggle to face the ‘new reality’ and to keep their families safe and sane. The story makes vivid the human, personal reality of mass disaster against the background of bureaucratic misinformation.
