2020… What a year! The year in which Corona brings us down, over and over… At the same time, we all keep moving to be born again. For that this year’s theme is: REBIRTH.

Despite all the restrictions, we feel there is an importance to keep producing stories and bringing them to the stage. So the preparations for the Amsterdam Storytelling Festival #13 are in full swing. The festival will take place in between October 28 and November 1 in Podium Mozaïek. Parts of the program will be online, so that we can reach out to all of you, wherever you are in the world. 

Although much smaller than before, there will be wonderful shows and inspiring talks for you to get excited about! You are super welcome to see performances or follow a workshop. Some shows are especially made for the festival, some are perfectly fitting the theme. Most of the shows can be visited by 30 people, so be fast if you want to get a ticket. The ticket prices include a drink.
