Bastiaan de Zwitser, a traditional Storyteller
“Stories are the hidden craft. As flighty as dreams, elusive as luck yet omnipresent.
To tell them and to hear them is a pleasure as old as a smile.” – Baron von Münchhausen –
Bastiaan de Zwitser (Swiss Bastiaan, Dutch speaking) tells a wild mix full of sweet tears, grim smiles and impish delight. He makes extensive use of his audience, for a storyteller without an audience is like a banana peel with no banana inside. By using the imagination, the attention and the reactions of his listeners he can chase from one adventure to the next as if an he’s being hunted by an undead granny. Always looking for fun but never eluding the extra layer which lends a good story that unique touch.
Since he’ll be telling his tales in Dutch you are presented with a choice. Either you learn Dutch really fast and join in or you watch, guess what it was about and ask for the summary after the show ;-)
