The Hague Storytelling Festival Winter Edition

The Hague Storytelling Festival Winter Edition, presents 4 storytelling masters Curated with the amsterdam storytelling festival. The festival this year will explore and deal with various interpretations of what freedom means, giving a special attention to the Festive Season and our connections as humans. Join us for a weekend of a curated programme with storytelling with music. 

The Hague Storytelling Festival will invite master storytelling performers such as:


Fernando Rodil – Pampa’s Pride

Before leaving his home country, Fer wrote a movie. A Pirates of the Caribbean in a local criollo style, he is convinced that it deserves the big screen. He decided to put on a one-hour show to tell the plot to anyone willing to listen. Knowing him, it is very likely that he will take advantage of the situation to air snippets of his private life and also reflect on what it means to be an Argentine living abroad.

Ashley Ramsden – Rumi, One Light

A Celebration of his Life, Poetry and Stories with storyteller Ashley Ramsden. 750 years ago, the great teacher Jelaluddin Rumi stepped out of this world. He left behind a trail of light that continues to unite people of all beliefs: “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there”. Come celebrate the enlightened wisdom and vision of a man who saw in his own time of darkness how the lamps may be different but the light the same. Ashley Ramsden is the founder of the School of Storytelling (UK) and has performed all over the world. Ramsden’s telling of Dickens’ Christmas Carol is a festive favourite in The Hague for almost 20 years. 

Aindrias de Staic – By the Light of the Silvery Moon

A special evening of Irish Stories told through words, sounds and music with Storyteller/Seanchaí Aindrias de Staic.
In this show the Bardic Irish Storyteller Aindrias de Staic treads in the footsteps of the great Irish storytellers, uncovering ancient pathways and heralding a new era of Irish storytelling. By the Light of the Silvery Moon is a new experience in storytelling, combining spoken word and guest musicians collaborating live to add a sonic soundscape to the tales and performance.

Danni Cullen – The red shoes

On the messiness of being human, trying to free herself from suffering; to find comedy in our tragedies. 

Danni Cullen is an Irish storyteller who was born in Dublin but lives all over, she is a bit of a gypsy pirate. She has been an elf for Santa Claus, she has tried to join the circus, lived with monks in India, been stranded in Mexico and was a tour guide in Spain. Yes, she has a few stories to tell. She loves to create theatre and tell stories that encourage us to play and laugh at ourselves.
