QUARANTINE STORIES - Fight fear with CULTURE
Online Storytelling project by: COMPAGNIA RACCONTAMIUNASTORIA (Italy) and TSC - THE STORYTELLING COMPANY (U.A.E)
“Quarantine Stories” is the reaction to the present time. It's an act of free art and resilience by professional Storytellers who have lost their jobs due to the cancellation of all live events due to the COVID-19 International Emergency. Quarantine stories is a cultural project to spread hope and positivity in this difficult time, following the example of the greatest story collector Giovanni Boccaccio, who in times of Black Death produced that masterpiece called the Decameron. The project follows also the footsteps of other great artists that in history, although made poor by pandemics, have continued to create art and kept the fire of culture burning also in dark time, as Shakespeare and Caravaggio.
