“Through story, we understand and remember important concepts. Stories enlarge perspectives, personalize history, build vocabulary, spark curiosity, celebrate teamwork, teach empathy and inspire creative choices. Combining spoken word, gesture and music, I invite my listeners into this ancient art form, where they eagerly invent their own movements and sounds to co-create their own stories.”
