Zamaleo Sigana Storytellers Featured at the Fabula Storytelling Festival

In October 2010 Zamaleo Sigana Storytellers team of Alumbe Namai, Githanda Githae and Wangari Grace joined a host of other international storytellers in Sweden. The tour started with storytellingworkshops at the Olan Theatre School and the Dalarna Performance Workshop. The tour culminated with performances in the annual Fabula Storytelling Festival held in the Swedish capital city of Stockholm.

During this tour Zamaleo Sigana Storytellers represented Kenya, showcasing the unique African storytelling tradition that many in the audience had never encountered. Alongside other storytellers, the team facilitated different workshops for beginners and professional storytellers keen on developing their craft.

Over the years, Zamaleo Sigana Storytellers have developed partnership with Fabula Storytellers Company which has seen Swedish storytellers perform at the Sigana International Storytelling Festival in Nairobi in 2009 and 2010. Participation in this festival also provided the opportunity to network and share experiences with fellow international professional storytellers.
