Toronto Storytelling Festival May 1-16, 2021

The 2021 Toronto Storytelling Festival begins May 1!  Our festival theme, Listening to the Voices of Nature, invites us to look beyond the screen that connects us to the wonders of nature that sustain us. We appreciate artists and audiences adventuring with us online. To begin the Festival in a good way, we are honoured that traditional teacher Kahontakwas Diane Longboat will share Ohén:ton Karihwatéhkwen, the Haudenosaunee Thanksgiving Address, giving greetings to the natural world. Tradition bearer and renown scientist and author Diana Beresford-Kroeger shares her life’s journey from ancient Celtic wisdom to a healing vision of the global forest. We are glad to be featuring Mairi Campbell, David Francis, Chirine El Ansary, and Stina Fagertun. We are grateful to our SC-CC colleagues in Halifax, Brockville, Ottawa, Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver Island who were looking forward to welcoming these artists in person last year, and we hope you will be able to enjoy their online performances, workshops, and talks. Workshops are scheduled throughout the festival, not in conflict with other events, and are exceptionally affordable. Performances and talks are available to view as replays until May 30. We hope you will enjoy this global garden of artists and old growth forest of ideas. torontostorytellingfestival.ca

Passing of Mary-Eileen McClear, d. April 2021

2021-04-12
Passing of Mary-Eileen McClear, d. April 2021From Carol Leigh Wehking, April 12 2021:

It is with great sadness we inform you that Mary-Eileen McClear is gone. She had been suffering from pancreatic cancer.

Released now from pain, she orchestrated an elegant death, and was surrounded by loving family and music.

This was a woman whom we loved and admired: talented, intelligent, gifted in countless ways, not the  least of which as a storyteller. She was kind and sensitive and generous and gracious. She was innumerable other good things as well, all of which will be dearly missed.

Her going is a diminishment in the world.

Virtual Humanity- A Zee Zee Theatre Production

Virtual Humanity- A Zee Zee Theatre Production

Inspired the Human Library created by Stop The Violence (Copenhagen)
Saturdays & Sundays in March, 12 pm – 3pm via Zoom


Virtual Humanity is a new Zee Zee Theatre initiative, which pivots Human Library, our community-based storytelling event into a new digital platform. Zee Zee has produced Human Library over the past eight seasons, and is keen to reimagine the project for this new era, curated by Bunny (Daisy Joe) and Sam Chimes. 


In Virtual Humanity audience members select a title from the collection of 30+ “Virtual Humans” in the collection – something that intrigues them, confuses them. They will then proceed into a one-one-one digital face to face conversation with their “Virtual Human”, a person who will share the true personal story that is reflected in their title, over the course of 20 minutes. This is a project designed to shatter preconceived notions about otherhood, to challenge our biases and misunderstandings and put a human face to difference as a means to foster empathy.
