What do you like about storytelling?
“I think everybody’s a storyteller. I think that’s how we get to understand what’s important for ourselves as well as for the other person as we’re sharing stories. I always wonder about the stories that I didn’t get to hear from people who are no longer around, like my father or my grandparents or just so many people who have passed now. So I think in a way, telling stories is a way of regurgitating their memories and sort of making their memories, my memories. I think that it’s really fascinating when people formulate story for performance. And I’m always looking within my own stories [and others’] storytelling for just kind of their raw truth and what it is that’s driving them to tell that story.”
