    Family Entertainment

    Sometimes it is hard to find activities which all the family can enjoy: traditional stories are like good children’s books, which while providing entertainment on a surface level, also carry deeper meaning for the grownups to appreciate.

    In addition, our style of telling gives room for participation, in singing, dancing, dialoguing with the tellers and contributing to the story.
