The Art of Storytelling

“Tales as old as time.” When we look for a tale, we often choose a book that already has a written story. But stories predate writing. For centuries, they have been used to communicate, to pass along traditions and as a valuable form of expression. Storytelling is an art. It is interactive and expressive.

On Tuesday, as part of Book Week, we experienced just how much of an art it is and how entertaining storytelling can be.

Julie Pasqual, professional storyteller on tour from the US, gave an energetic performance drawing on her talents as clown, dancer, actor and comedian and thrilled classes from Pre-Nursery through Year 6 in a range of assemblies. Her folk tales derive from various cultures.  Not only did they mesmerize the audience, but they also delivered important messages about kindness and friendship. Every child’s imagination was alive as they became part of the story – creating characters, making faces, sounds and wiggles, asking and answering questions, guessing riddles. There was even time for Junior School students to ask Julie some questions and to get her autograph!

Julie is a graduate of the New York City High School of the Performing Arts. She has been a dancer, and is active in Clowns Without Borders and the Big Apple Circus Clown Care Hospital Programme. She travels widely and uses her performance abilities and love of world cultures, language and spirit to entertain and inspire people of all ages.

From Wednesday through Friday, we host Shanghai Book Traders in Block C foyer.  They will be selling the latest – and classic – titles at reasonable prices for all year levels, and even adults.  From 8:30am-4pm, come and see what is on offer.
