The Monkey and the Crocodile

In this funny, sharp set of fables, animals take on human roles - to reveal human behavior in all its folly.
The source for these stories is the Panchatantra, a Sanskrit work which influenced both Aesop and La Fontaine -- so these are tales with a universal dimension.
Abbi Patrix uses the power of speech to weave an inescapable net of words.... beware the stories and beware the storyteller!

French-Swedish European meet-up

Storytelling, a full-fledged performing art

European partnerships are in the heart of the development of storytelling issues. Stories are part of the countries common heritage and, in the light of the rise of extremisms, stories and universality help the duty of memory. Stories keep moving, just as human beings and despite our differences we often have stories in common.
