STORYTELLING @ SOMPASAUNA
August 22nd at 7pm
Sompasaaren laituri, Helsinki
Join us in sharing your stories by the open campfire of atmospheric Sompasauna! In accordance with Runokuu´s this year´s theme, the motif of our storytelling session will be roots. Storytellers of Samova ry, Markus Luukkonen and Ilkka Hautala, as well as musician Liila Jokelin will be pacing up the conversations by the fire.
Markus Luukkonen is a storyteller who combines folk lore, myths and personal stories in his performances. Markus tells his stories with a twinkle in his eye & in a down to earth kind of manner.
Ilkka Hautala is a teacher of eloquence (puhetaide) and storyteller, who wants to see the meaning in meaningless and legends as a pocket size property of everyone. Story is a tool, art and determinant of one´s humanity to him.
Singer-songwriter Liila Jokelin believes in a strong story. In Liila´s songs melancholic folk, old hit songs and punk-spirited ecstacy fuse into a tune with a core of raw joy and will to love.
In collaboration with Samova ry, Sompasauna, Runokuu
Story Sharing Café @ Lapinlahti
Welcome to a hot night of stories and dancing in Lapinlahti Friday 17.8 at 18:00!
Free entry, live music, Dj and Dancing
The Dance-Up RefuGee and Story Sharing Universum communities join forces together with Lapinlahden Lähde for a great outdoor story sharing and dance party in the middle of August. Great stories will be told. Groovy music will be played. And then we dance!
Dance-Up RefuGee creates cross cultural meetings through the joy of dancing together in the name of mutual equality and respect. We believe that Dancing together creates a common language even where there isn’t one!
Story Sharing Café is an easy and fun event where asylum seekers, immigrants and native Finns can meet and share stories together. Come and listen to stories at the coffee tables! If you wish you may freely share your everyday stories and memories in small groups led by our Story Sharing group. We will create a heartwarming and enjoyable event!
We speak at least English, Finnish, Swedish, Arabic, Dari, French, Pashto, Farsi, Russian and Dance!
The evening is hosted by Pro Lapinlahti, an open meeting point for culture and spirit.
