  Minton Sparks as teller in Residence at International Storytelling Center
State: Tennessee

Minton Sparks fuses wildly original poetry and an intoxicating gift for storytelling into performances that share her memories of growing up in a small-town southern family. Sparks’s writing has received acclaim from NPR’s Weekend All Things Considered and BBC’s Bob Harris Show. Her appearances range from the venerable Old Towne School of Folk Music to the Lincoln Center in New York City to the Grand Ole Opry. Sparks’s performances are punctuated with music from the acoustic guitar of John Jackson, who’s perhaps best known for having played with Bob Dylan. “Where to begin with the genre defying Minton Sparks: poet, storyteller, singer, comedienne, educator, writer, activist, essayist, philosopher, painter, performance artist? Ms. Sparks holds a curved mirror to society.” – Huffington Post

Over twenty performers will be telling during this season. At each Word Play, a different group of performers tell rarely heard contemporary and traditional stories celebrating the human Spirit.

Each show has its own theme where each story told relates to that theme.

In addition to the two venues featuring the wonderful talents of our professional storytellers and musicians, we will also offer our children's librarians' Storytime Stage. Here Wake County Librarians will present storytimes that interweave the same educational concepts that we include in our programs.
Each child will have the opportunity to complete a 'Passport to Fun' by visiting activity tents and sites focused on story, song, writing, reading and play. So bring a blanket or lawn chair, because rain or shine we will be telling stories for our 34th year - join us!

  Don White as Teller-In-Residence
State: Tennessee

There is no one-word description for what Don White does. He has brought audiences to laughter and tears in his live performances, studio recordings, and on the printed page for over twenty years. As a storyteller, comedian, author, troubadour, folksinger, and songwriter, White is a walking challenge to the phrase “file under.” “No artist on the coffeehouse circuit today is better than Don White at combining the heartfelt aesthetics of the singer-songwriter with side-splitting laughs. He mines the same regions for his jokes as he does for his serious songs: his streetwise, sometimes warring, sometimes loving family in Lynn.” – The Boston Globe

  Journey through the Landscape of Story
State: Tennessee

STOR 5830, Storytelling Institute, Sept. 30-Oct. 2 (Fall semester, 2016). 1 credit elective. Guest Instructor: Clare Muireann Murphy. Topic: "Journey through the Landscape of Story”
How do we make the transition from person to teller? How do we navigate the space between offstage and on, between real and imagined worlds? How do we imagine the landscape of our storyworlds and how do we make them as real as possible to the audience? How do we fully inhabit a landscape and fully embody a story? In this intensive weekend at ETSU we will explore these questions. This is not a beginners' workshop. Please bring a piece you are working on, as well as some new material that you know but have not performed much. These pieces should each be between 15-20 minutes long."
INSTITUTE LEADER BIO:
