The 5th Sigana International Storytelling Festival, 7th - 9th June 2013

Once upon a time, a man wished to light a fire and warm himself a little. So he scraped away the loose earth and, as he was thus clearing the ground, he found a tiny, golden key. Hereupon he thought that where the key was, the lock must be also, and digging in the ground he found an iron chest.

"If the key will only fit it, !" thought he, "for no doubt there are precious things in that little box." He searched but no keyhole was there. At last he discovered one, but so small that it was hardly visible. He tried it and the key fitted exactly. Then he turned it once round, and now we must wait until he has quite unlocked it and opened the lid and then we shall learn what wonderful things were lying in that box at the SIGANA festival this year!

The Sigana International Storytelling Festival (SISF) provides Kenyan audiences and lovers of the age-old sacred art of storytelling the rare opportunity to experience both Homegrown and "Diasporan" performances. This is the Festival's 5th year edition. The hallowed cycle stage of stories shall feature reputable and world renowned Storytellers from the United States of America (USA), Denmark, Romania and Kenya. It is a guaranteed promise of sublime fun, excitement and memorable moments!
