2012 Toronto Festival of Storytelling will be a celebration and exploration of all things ‘Canadian’ from Thursday, March 29 to Sunday, April 1, 2012, with the final day, April 1, being held atHarbourfrontCenter. Through stories that reveal our identity, we will explore our triumphs, contributions, uniqueness, struggles and growth as a nation. From our First Nations’ origins and European influences of the past, to the more recent arrival of immigrants from Europe, Africa, the Caribbean, Asia and the Americas- our country and its identity is constantly being reshaped.
You’ll fall in love with the multi-dimensional story of our great nation after sitting at the feet of our homegrown and world renowned tellers. Ivan Coyote will work her magic with enchanting tales of the Yukon. Newfoundland and Labrador’s Andy Jones of CODCO fame will leave you in stitches with his electric ‘Jack’ stories. Robert Seven Crows (Quebec) will share the secrets of nature and this land’s indigenous people with his guitar and drum. Special appearances by Korean storyteller Seung Ah Kim, Spoken Word artist Dwayne Morgan, UK teller Richard Martin, and US tale spinner Rafe Martin.
