WORKSHOPS, PERFORMANCES, DISCUSSIONS AND OPEN FLOOR at the Glen Eira Storytelling Festival June 2015


WORKSHOP: TEENA HARTNETT

True stories, said, not read
Sat June 20
10.00am

Learn how to craft stories from your life or from the lives of others. Develop skills to speak from the heart, rather than read, and deliver your story in a way that moves and entertains. You will be helped to identify events and characters to create a personal narrative beyond anecdote, to a satisfyingly shaped piece for telling. Wouldn’t you like to step up to the mic and share a story?
Please bring pen and paper.

The workshops will culminate in a performance at Santucci’s CafĂ© Carnegie.

OPEN FLOOR: HOSTED BY TEENA HARTNETT

True stories, said, not read
Sat June 20

Curated personal storytelling events have never been so popular. In the US, there is The Moth (New York), This American Life and in Australia there is the ABC’s Now Hear This.  In Melbourne, people gather throughout the year at thematic nights of story: The Cock and Bull, Rocket Clock, Storytelling Nights at The Elwood Lounge and Laborastory. Wouldn’t you like to step up to the mic and share a story?

PERFORMANCES: ROSLYN QUIN

The Echoes of Heirlooms
Mon 15 June  6.00 pm
Mon 22 June  6.00 pm



Join Miss Roslyn Quin at Antique Bar as she dusts off a myriad of antiques to weave her original tales of the preposterous from grandmothers and great uncles you never had... but on evenings such as this, and with a teller like her, you can rest assured that the tales won’t stay safely in the cabinets and drawers where she found them.

Sat June 13

The Monash Fairy Tale Salon is hosting a curious afternoon of madness and muchness as we go down the rabbit hole in celebration of the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Come along and learn about the author and illustrators who shaped literary history and gave us such wonderfully uncommon nonsense. For the bold at heart (or the Queen of Hearts), come dressed as your favourite wonderland character! This event - part of the Glen Eira Storytelling Festival - is open to anyone who has a love for nonsense.


Alice in the The Garden of Live Flowers

Louisa John-Krol is among the wonderlanders. Hailing from Storytelling Australia Vic, The Monash Fairy Tale Salon, Writers Vic and Australian Fairy Tale Society, she’ll perform her song, “Alice in the Garden of Live Flowers”. Recorded twice, in two studios, with different producers (Spring Studio with Harry Williamson; Siamese Studios/Eden with Brett Taylor), it is a hybrid, chopped and grafted: Alice moves between sonic rooms, through dream-doors. Released on French record label Prikosnovenie in the CD Ariel, it sold out of all editions but is at Bandcamp.

Listen to Alice in the The Garden of Live Flowers at Bandcamp HERE 

Shrinking, expanding, the song sometimes drops out completely. Flowers speak, petals scatter... free-fall?

Would you like to be in this act? Feel like swishing across the stage as a flower, darting as a rabbit, or sipping tea with the March Hare, Mad Hatter and Dormouse? Puppets, butterflies, windchimes, botanical hats and other quirks welcome: arielsflight@optushome.com.au    

Happy Anniversary, Alice!
