Stories in Kensington
Telling stories tonight at the Kensington Row Bookshop. Good crowd - which always makes it that much better for the storyteller.
I told a new story - combining a folktale with a personal story - each complementing the other as a way to build a whole story that has a riskier tone - more edgy - more like a fringe performance. I am happy with the way things are going with the story, although I do still have some work to do before I tell it again at Speakeasydc on September 11.
Next Tuesday the audience will be larger and tougher. Rehearsing a story like this is such a valuable experience. Preparing before a smaller audience so that there is a chance for listeners to give informal feed back on the story afterwards.
The Kensington Row Bookshop is a comfortable place to tell stories. It has an informal, homelike feelilng which is perfect for storytelling.
