Toronto Storytelling Festival (Tracing back the Silk Road)
Ron Korb will be sharing his personal story "Fukuoka with Love" describing his adventures searching for his Japanese Heritage in Kyushu as part of the The Katari Japanese Storytellers’ portion of the Toronto Storytelling Festival. The Katari Japanese Storytellers’ annual show in spring has been part of the Toronto Storytelling Festival since their inauguration. In 1994, a group of Japanese teachers in the Toronto area started telling Japanese traditional and contemporary stories both in English and Japanese for two purposes: to share Japanese culture, and to pass their heritage to the next generation growing up here in Canada. This event will be available to view on YouTube and Facebook May 17-30.
