Why We Tell Stories

Why We Tell Stories

In this fully captioned spoken word show, Krogstad uses her individual experience to point out the commonality between all of us, through personal stories on the universal themes of love, loss, humor, self-expression, and more.  Heart-warming, hopeful, and vulnerable, Why We Tell Stories is an appeal to acceptance and diversity that should not be missed.

In a powerful, multimedia show, Krogstad delivers stories of love and connection while simultaneously celebrating individual uniqueness.  With the support of Canada Council for the Arts, Calgary Arts Development, Canadian Hard of Hearing Association, and Arts Commons, this show will be creatively captioned through the use of lyric videos, calligraphy, videography, and more.  Using comedy, film, captions, dance, music, and other art forms in this storytelling journey, the show will leave you feeling engaged and inspired, uplifted and challenged.
