AT THE NAC FOURTH STAGE / THURSDAY APRIL 17
The Fourth Stage Series
The Ottawa Storytellers series at the Fourth Stage
showcases the best of our local storytellers in
performances which will entertain, move and delight
with their age-old fusion of the teller, the listeners
and the tale.
The Thursday, April 17th Concert
On April 17, Ottawa Storytellers presents 'Tis The Lot
Of The Worker. Work! Each one of us has to do it.
The stories abound.
There's the story about the man who had a dream. That
dream was to work as a stand-up comic. He was trying
to demonstrate how well he could juggle when….
There's the story about the woman faced with low pay
and lousy conditions.
There's the story about the worker with the burning
passion to fight for fellow-workers' rights.
Daniel Kletke. Daniel has just returned to Ottawa
from several years in Halifax. His interest in
storytelling started when he began coming to the very
first Stories From The Ages winter series. At the
time, he was still in high school. He has nurtured his
interest to notable effect. His voice has the richness
of honey. No matter what story he is telling,
audiences are always left longing for more.
Donna Stewart. For Donna, story is the stuff of
living. She has spent much time researching and
developing stories from Canadian history: often the
stories of the seemingly less important, less known
figures upon whom so much of life depends. She has a
strong concern with social justice. In her telling and
in her every action, that shows!
Alan Shain. Alan comes to storytelling from a
background in stand-up comedy at Yuk Yuks. He has
toured extensively in Canada and in Australia with his
one man theatre piece, Still Waiting For That Special
Bus. A disability activist who developed cerebral
palsy at birth, he is currently involved in a project
to encourage dance as an art form among the disabled.
He is a man of many parts and he brings the all of
himself to whatever he does.
