A couple of years ago, by the end of November, in the town of Montcada i Reixac they invite me to celebrate the Universal Children’s Day telling stories. And it is a real pleasure, as I always find hidden treasures in the bookshelves of the two libraries in town before beginning with the stories. This year I will bring stories that were told at the end of the day, around the fire. Or under the starlight, watching the fields during the harvest. Or maybe under the shadow of our big brothers, the trees. Next Wednesday 30th I will tell them at Elisenda de Montcada ...


Colin McAllister at Munt de Mots
16/10/2016 - blog

We are already in Autumn and soon it will be Samháin, the end of summer for the Celts. And talking about the Celts, this week visits us Colin McAllister, an Irish storyteller that I had the pleasure to meet last year in the Festival Baltica and who will be in Barcelona during the Festival Munt de Mots (here you have the full program) sharing his stories with everyone who wishes to listen them. I see Colin as a real «homo narrans»: on every step he takes a story arises naturally, as he has seen his parents, his uncles… in an environment where folktales, events and ...

Folktales at Olokuti’s Yard (2)
03/08/2016 - blog

These days of Summer laziness, stories grow in the shade of the pine trees or under the stars, but above all, in good company. This summer I can’t complain: the last 11th of July we recalled some tàándem classics with Ignasi Potrony. Next Monday the Venezuelan storyteller Marisol Cumare will accompany me. And to give you time to note it down, the 5th of September I will tell stories with Helena Cuesta. An excellent excuse to meet and share stories.

Museum Night: word of mouth stories
15/05/2016 - blog

I remember that, some years ago, when we use to go around the world in 80 folktales at the Ethnological Museum of Barcelona, before closed its doors for renovation, I liked to begin the tour in the museum’s reserve, in the basement. It was for me the perfect place to speak to the children about tangible heritage, all these mysterious items that surrounded us, and intangible heritage, stories, that children could take home, if they wanted to. Around us rose up, building dark corridors, cabinets with glass windows full of marvellous objects, waiting the moment to ...

Storytelling Season: McGuffin Festivalet
02/05/2016 - blog

  Weather is crazy: one day we go to Summer, and the day after, it seems we go back to winter. You don’t know in which season are you: time for t-shirt or coat, for a hot chocolate or a refreshing orchata. But one thing is certain: it is storytelling season. Popping up like a mushroom, thanks to much rain, a bit of sun, and a group of people who love stories, tomorrow a little storytelling festival begins: McGuffin Festivalet. From the 3rd Mai until the 18th June, McGuffin Festivalet, under the name of Temps de contes (Storytelling season) will gather 54 ...


Storytelling in Belgium
27/04/2016 - blog

After two months of medical leave, I was looking forward to a storytelling trip. I went last Monday, and after promising that I would be a good girl (no running, no lifting weight, no making efforts), I boarded a plane to Brussels, on the way to the International Storytelling Festival from Alden Biesen. Monday 18th April It is not easy to reach the castle of Alden Biesen: not many direct trains arrive to Bilzen, the nearest town, and the buses in constant delay in an airport that is still struggling to recover normal operations after the terrible attacks on the 22th ...

This year the weather is crazy: winter just passed by, and the rain too. This reminds me a story inspired by the Aztec myth from Tlaloc which I’ve retold for Tantágora, magazine from oral literature in digital format, that you can read here  (in Spanish), illustrated by Vinicius Marquet.
