The festival moves to the Barns for a Friday night and Saturday full of storytelling for families and adults. On Friday, Toronto's long-running 1001 Friday Nights of Storytelling happens in the Main Barn. On Saturday morning and afternoon, For Younger Ears fills Solar Stage's theatre with stories from Jamaica, Holland, Iran, and Toronto. Also running throughout the day: Story Planet, Fresh and Local (with personal stories and remixed fairytales), The Shoe Project, Storytent, and more. And at night, we celebrate the art and traditions of storytelling with Laura Simms (New York), Gcina Mhlophe (South Africa), and Toronto's very own Anna Kerz. We are sorry to announce that Yukon storyteller Sharon Shorty is unable to join us due to illness. #TorontoStorytellingFestival, #frameyourstory, #1001FridayNightsofStorytelling, #ArtscapeWychwoodBarns, #SolarStage, #EmergencyMonologues, #TheatreDirect, #StoryPlanet
