Beauty and the Beast: Performances and Discussion

Welcome to StoryRise! We had five unique storytellers with diverse backgrounds and with local, national and international experience in telling stories. We turned them loose with the goal of telling a story from the “tale type” of 425C. What does that mean? Five tellers presented “Beauty and the Beast” stories from a variety of cultures and locations such as England, Switzerland, Southwest United States and Nigeria

What are the stories of “Beauty and the Beast?” What do they mean?

Following the great performances, a discussion was held between tellers and audience. YOU can listen in now to the performances and the discussion that followed. Soon, you will be able to read the printed transcript of the discussion, too.
