StoryFest: International Storytelling Festival Singapore will be returning for its third edition to once again showcase the best in artistic and applied storytelling in Singapore and from around the world. Presented by The Storytelling Centre Limited and The Arts House, StoryFest 2019 will be celebrating the theme of “Make Believe”, creating the spark for audiences to activate their imagination through storytelling, and encouraging them to actively create their own meaning through the stories told. StoryFest 2019 will feature a variety of local commissions and international performances,
applied storytelling workshops and free, interactive programmes that are suitable for both adult and family audiences.
Local content includes The Singapore Showcase: Make Believe, which features six local storytellers from different professional backgrounds, with each one telling stories related to the Nusantara region – including stories directly from the Nusantara region, as well as migrant communities of Asia. The Singapore Showcase demonstrates how the connection audiences feel to their roots can extend beyond their ethnicities, to the region they grew up in.
