"Trick a Troll, Fool the Ferocious" is the theme of the upcoming concert blending traditional storytelling and spoken word for adults. Continuing the west-valley storytelling series “StoryRise,” tellers from across the valley will share their takes on the theme.  A discussion of the art form and the tales follows. $10, Saturday, January 25, 2020 at 7:00 P.M. The concert is held at the Residence Inn in Avondale, 11465 W. Hilton Way. This performance is not intended for children. For more information and tickets, please see the StoryRise website at 

“The ‘One Story, Many Voices’ approach to this night gives our tellers all one task: to interpret a very specific set of traditional folktales for modern audiences,” says Sean Buvala. Sean has been working nationally in storytelling for 34  years and is recognized for his storytelling by the National Storytelling Network with their "Oracle Award."

Buvala added, "We want to be sure that folks understand this is not a children's event. Our storytelling is intended for adults and mature teens. We like to call these nights the 'no bunny slippers' events, referring to the famous footwear of young children. People sometimes hear the word 'storytelling' and think cute, little story-times at the local library. This presentation is nothing like that at all."
