Northwest Folklife and 13 Storytellers

Well, at long last I am sitting down to write a blurb on our time in Seattle at the Northwest Folklife Festival on Memorial Day Weekend, 2011. 13 storytellers from Leavenworth descended upon the Seattle Center and wowed an audience with the wisdom of Aesop’s Fables. Despite the roar of airplanes over head, the din of nearby steel drums, and a constant throng strolling by, the kids concentrated with the greatest ease, practicing their art, otherwise known as ‘theater of the face.’ And we certainly ended up with a face, a Luke face of a tailor in love with his new coat. ┬áThank you to all the parents for supporting this crazy venture. We may just do this again!
