What you'll do
Storytelling Evenings, more than 70 to date, have been voted the "Best Recurring Event in Paris" by Expatriate Magazine. These are gatherings of 20-25 guests at my private residence near the Marais. These are modern day "Parisian Salons" where storytelling enthusiasts mingle, dine (5-courses plus champagne & wine) then listen to the featured storyteller who could be an entertainer, singer (jazz, opera, etc..), artist, musician, magician, dancer, or actor who performs as an extension of telling their story. Guests are Parisians, locals, expats, and people (like you) passing through Paris. The 5-course menu is always different, corresponding with the storytellers’ origins. VEGETARIAN option with advance request. On October 12th the Storyteller is Carolina Orozco, Nomadic Dancer of the World, who has performed across the globe starting in her native Colombia and throughout a 15-year career touching down in India, Benin, Ecuador, Mexico, Guadeloupe, Syria, Egypt and France. She currently performs and tours with various international companies such as the Afro-Brazilian company, Tambores Nago and the Free Dance Song Company. At this Storytelling Evening, Carolina will tell us her story and perform a blend of traditional dances from around the world. Note: December 14th the Storyteller is Soprano Marie-Claude Bottius Questions don't hesitate...contact host Bernadette
