Long Ago, Far Away

Common (Canada) , November 2004


Stories from around the world will be presented at the 13th Annual Vancouver International Storytelling Festival. The Vancouver Society of Storytelling is committed to creating a stronger community around the ancient and innovative art form of storytelling.

This year’s festival looks deeply into the vibrant cultures that make up Vancouver today, and explore the stories that have been brought here by newcomers from many lands. In particular this event will focus on the middle eastern community and its rich tradition of story; you are invited to 2004 Arabian Nights. For two full days, colourful folktales from this culture will unfold in an atmosphere enhanced with Persian carpets, green tea, hypnotic music and aromatic teas. Stories will be told by immigrants, emerging and seasoned storytellers in English, Persian, and Arabic.
