Kancil Story animal puppet children storytelling in Malaysia

Stories are the best way to connect and understand people around the world, isn't it?
Today I want to share with you this funny video from Malaysia, about Kancil Story with animal puppet storytelling (video by Sri Wisnu).

Dongeng Kancil is one of the culture of Indonesia, Java Island. This story telling tells the story of “Kancil”. This fable is full of life education that reflects of the human characters that symbolized by animal characters. It is performed using leather puppet, screen, banana trunk, puppet box, dodogan, keprak, and javanese gamelan orchestra.

Eddy Pursubaryanto, a lecturer of Gadjah Mada University Indonesia, was invited to have a kancil puppet talk in Sultan Idris Education University (UPSI) Malaysia. The talk was organized by Mayco Santaella, a lecturer of UPSI.

Fear Experiment Storytelling Video

That's a happy surprise.
While I am preparing the nine edition of my storytelling festival - next year will be on the diversity of fear, I found this wonderful work about fear too, shared by Saya Hillman.
Very very interesting, read and watch carefully.

As a way to experience personal growth and to meet others, strangers apply to learn an art-form -- dance, improv, storytelling, stepping, or a capella -- over three months, in preparation to perform in front of hundreds.
The criteria to participate?1) Something about the experience has to scare you. Because when you challenge yourself to do something out of the proverbial comfort zone, beautiful things happen.
2) You have to sign up solo. No roommate, best friend, significant other as a security blanket.
These are the storytellers of Fear Experiment, including a representative from the Do Good Partner, The Cara Program, Andrea. Cara helps adults overcome homelessness and unemployment through training programs.
To learn about Cara, head here:
To see the rest of the show including a capella and stepping, head here.
