I tell stories in English, French and German. [Russian and Romanian would also be nice, and are partly possible, but I’d need to concentrate, and learn the texts a little bit by heart, since I have a good accent, but I’m not fluent.]
I tell all kinds of stories – though not yet as many different ones as I would like. I tell the stories that I remember easily, because they must mean something special to me.
I also invent stories of my own, when I feel so moved. And I take written-down stories that I’m especially fond of and tell them without learning the text.
I have no hesitation about inventing details, ascribing motivation, tidying up plots. I am a storyteller, and I serve the story and my audience. Stories are like old coins – parts of them have rubbed away with use, and they need restoring, so you can see the whole picture.
On this website I will tell you about the stories I tell, and why I tell them. I will talk about my art, give hints and help and links to texts of stories that I already tell, or might tell in the future.
