No Beginning, no End: Storytelling Performance and Workshop
17 November 2018, 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm| Free
Join author and performer Dr Vayu Naidu and musician Melinda Maxwell for a storytelling performance and workshop about stories that travel across cultures and languages. This event is supported by the MULOSIGE project at SOAS, University of London, and hosted by the N4 Library, Islington.
What is multilingualism? What does a multilingual society look like? And what shape does this multilingualism take in stories and books from around the world? Join the MULOSIGE project and author Vayu Naidu for a one-day event exploring the many sides of multilingualism, bringing together storytellers and performers to tell the endless stories of multilingualism and multilingual stories from across the globe. A perfect event for children (especially those from bi- or multilingual families) and adults alike.
Hosted by the N4 Library in Islington this event will consist of two parts: first, a musical and storytelling performance which will highlight the translingual and migratory aspect of oral traditions and literature; and, second, a workshop in which each participant will compose and tell their own story. Knowledge of another language is not necessary to attend (and enjoy!) this event. Attendance is free and open to all.
