Call for performers and storytellers: Legends and Myths

A long, long, time ago… The beginnings of an epic tale always start with these words. Folktales, myths, legends, are the stories that have been passed down from generation to generation. They carry our ancestors and the culture that has formed the way we view the world. From magical creatures, to a hero’s journey, we want to hear them all. Did you grow up with fantastical stories from your culture? We’re putting together a video series to share all the interesting tales from around our diverse community. Explore your heritage, talk to your family, do some Google-ing, and find a folktale that you want to tell, and create a film. We challenge you to test your creative limits while telling your story. Use props, costumes, makeup. Consider your surroundings, how can you set the scene? If the story is best told in your native language, we strongly encourage you to use it (we’ll need an english transcript to make the video accessible to all). This opportunity will be a chance for all our performers, actors, screenwriters and other oral storytellers to create something while the world is on hold.
