Story Concerts

Storytelling is a centuries old tradition passed down from generation to generation.  In the past, storytelling was used to teach lessons to children; in today’s society it is viewed as entertainment.  Storytelling is a unique and powerful performing art.  It expresses, teaches, and preserves values and beliefs; it engages the emotions, the imagination and the intellect of listeners of all ages.   Stories shared at a story concert provide a community with the common historical knowledge and shared vision needed to inspire collective action.  The Chickasaw Nation is dedicated to advancing the art of storytelling – as a performing art, a process of cultural transformation, and more. 

Story concerts are performed seasonally in an intimate setting where the audience sits close to the tellers.  Performances are generally free to the public and are performed in the black box theatre, located in the arts and humanities building.
 
Spooky Tales are performed in the odd numbered years and Love Stories are performed in the even numbered years.

You Provide:

Anyone interested in participating in the story concerts may submit a portfolio of past performances.  A DVD portfolio is recommended.
