As per JK Rowling, “There’s always room for a story that can transport people to another place.” And, this is what exactly happened when Tale Tellers Troupe India conducted ‘International Storytelling Festival’ at Apollo Foundation Theatre on Saturday.
The evening was well ignited with stories not only from the city or country but also from people around the globe. With each and every story, the audience did feel some sort of connection.
The stories took some people back to their olden days, whereas some could relate to it in present time. Some of the stories were extremely hilarious and some raised thousands of questions on the topics that we deal with everyday… but, all of the tales ended with so much of positivity.
The stories made audience think of their capabilities, the way they see their life. Some stories inspired people to overcome all kinds of fears and some of the audience wished to be onstage to tell their own story.
The audience members across all age groups stayed throughout the session and the cosy stage witnessed participants from South Africa, the UK, the US, Singapore, Egypt, Brazil and, of course, India. Some of them shared their personal stories which are socially relevant and some of them shared some historical and famous folk tales.
The best part of the event was that the stories were told in different art forms and most of the participants on stage were once the target of stage fear. And, this really compliments Tale Tellers Troupe India’s campaign ‘India without Stage Fear’ which boosts the confidence in the people sitting opposite the stage.
