Welcome to the FOOL blog!

Festival of Oral Literatures is a celebration of the mouth almighty, from storytelling to spoken word. F.O.O.L features experiments in oral narrative, traditional folktelling, collaborative performances, solo word-dancers, and a myth remix.

FOOL welcomes listeners and performers into spaces where the performance of oral stories opens an intimate connection between artist and audience. F.O.O.L. is being co-produced by GirlCanCreate and The Tellery, under the artistic direction of Lisa Pijuan-Nomura and Dan Yashinsky.

It takes place October 22 to October 25, 2009 at various locations in Toronto. F.O.O.L. features a wide range of storytellers, spoken word artists, and performers who use voice, movement, music, and story to create mind-movies for their audiences.

Performances take place in house concerts, at the Artscape Wychwood Barns, and in Kensington Market.

We are currently working on our website and it should be up in the next few days with all of the information!
