FEAST FEST: A Celebration of Asian StoriesOctober 15, 2021 Friday,11:00 - October 31, 2021 Sunday,16:00
The Federation of Asian Storytellers is delighted to invite all members of FEST to attend the inaugural FEAST FEST, an online celebration of Asian stories featuring 168 storytellers, dancers and musicians from 27 countries in Asia and around the world; with three hours of storytelling every single day from 15- 31st October. Presented by experienced storytellers, these stories showcase both the cultures and wisdom of Asia. One of FEAST’s objectives is to promote Asian stories and tellers to a wider audience of like-minded individuals who appreciate the art and passion of oral storytelling.
The live broadcasts are every day at 5pm (MULTI-LINGUAL stream) 7pm (KIDS stream) and 9pm (ADULTS stream) Singapore time (+8 hours GMT) A recording of each day’s session will be available for viewing on the FEAST website by the next day. The recordings will continue to be available until 30 November 2021.
We believe you will find much that is of interest:
- In the Adult Stream, the 7 episode version (3.5 hours) of the Indian epic the Ramayana, presented by 14 members of our India Chapter is an obvious highlight, but Persian tales told by an Iranian, Nasruddin with a Turk, and Indian tellers sharing stories of Akbar and Birbal and collaborating with Bharatanatyam dancers . . . There’s also the launch of our fourth collection of Asian folktales, in ebook format, of the noisily titled Splish! Splash! Splosh! which features tales on the theme of water.
- In the Multi-lingual Stream, performances by Japanese, Korean and Filipino artists in their mother tongues, as well as Indian tellers using seven of their national languages, provide fascinating exposure to the diverse cultures of Asia
- In the Kids Stream, Panchantantra tales told in a Swiss forest, and celebrations of kamishibai, puppets, and lots of interaction offer a varied and engaging programme.
