performance art

I went to a storytelling festival at the library today (with the girls, of course) and one of the storytellers was really good and the other two were... not so good. I'm trying to figure out what made the difference between riveting and very distractable to a room full of kindergarteners. I think it was mostly talent. Also, I think, experience, timing, and knowing the audience. Mostly, though, I think it was that the good storyteller had a really great voice that was loud and resonant and that you just wanted to get more of. Like a butter-rum lollipop. Yum.

He also managed to make all the kids laugh SO HARD over and over at the same physical humor. It was really impressive. The good storyteller's name is Dan Keding- I highly recommend seeing him if you ever get the chance.
