Storytelling is central to human existence. Discover more about the value of this ancient tradition on February 12 at the next AIR Time, presented by AIR (Arts Incubator of Richardson), where storyteller, oral historian, writer, and educator, Decee Cornish, will share about his gift of sharing stories and performing, and how effective storytelling can be as a classroom strategy as well as sheer entertainment. We know you’ll leave with a story to share!
This evening’s movie selection is BIG FISH (2003, PG-13, 2h 5m), directed by Tim Burton, and starring Ewan McGregor, Albert Finney and Billy Crudup. In this fantastical tale, a son (Crudup) tries to reconnect with his dying father (Finney), trying to determine the truth from the fiction in the charismatic tall tales he shares. As the movie unfurls, the storytelling bond strengthens.
