An Afternoon of Stories: with Sylvie Mombo (ages 6-12)
February 1 @ 15 h 00 min - 16 h 00 min
Stop by for an afternoon of storytelling with professional storyteller Sylvie Mombo!
During this special event, Sylvie will share two stories with us, then talk about her process hunting down great stories and preparing them to share.
About Sylvie Mombo: Born in Paris, Syvlie inherited a love of words and a passion for sharing stories from her Gabonese and Guadeloupean parents. Before becoming a professional storyteller, she had many careers: librarian, dancer, history and literature teacher. Through these experiences, and through working with artists such as Irène Tassembedo Malien (choreographer), Thomas Leabart (American mime artist/actor), Philippe Adrien (director), and Gilles Bizouerne (storyteller) Sylvie has developed an original way of storytelling, which is a mix of mime, dance and comedy.
