What A Tangle! Spectacular String Stories For Kids, With Anne Glover

 

Free; wheelchair accessible venue.

 

Anne Glover brings her stories to life with wild and wonderful string games! She is often asked what kinds of spectacular things she can make with strings. Airplanes? Yup. Dragons? Yup. A horse with a person on its back riding all the way through the universe and bumping into a dinosaur with a griffin on its back, driving a car? You bet! Her fabulous, fun-filled stories are a treat for the whole family! Plus, enjoy the stylings of a couple local young tellers as they take their first steps into Storytelling!

ABOUT ANNE GLOVER:

 

Anne Glover has made her living as a performer for most of her adult life. From Tofino to Tokyo, Hamilton to Honolulu, she enthralls audiences of all ages with her unique storytelling style and her unforgettable string figures. A natural communicator, Anne followed her love of languages and studied linguistics and languages at the University of Toronto, then Université Laval in Quebec City. She ended up teaching English as a second language to adults in Quebec, and happened into performing because she enjoyed telling stories to keep her students awake during class. When she moved to the west coast in the 1980’s, she widened her audience and began telling stories for children. She toured for several years with musician David Kaetz before finding her footing as a solo performer in 1998. Since then, she has toured extensively in Canada, the US, and more recently Japan and Hawaii.

In addition to entertaining in schools, theatres, festivals and folk clubs, Anne leads workshops and speaks at educational and parenting conferences. She has been a mentor to several teachers on the art of integrating storytelling across the curriculum.

 

Anne will also be hosting
