Our writer and dear friend, David Silverman shifted formats this months Father’s Day Special Event to a ‘Twisted Review’ of Satori Shakoor’s Secret Society of Twisted Storytellers… check it out…
Dear Twisted Storyteller reviewees, this past event held June, 19, 2015, just before Father’s Day, with theme in harmony was simply inspiring!
How does Satori find these wonderful people? We were initially treated to an ensemble of Daddy daughter dancers. From fathers of 30 years to roughly 90 years old there with daughters to strut there stuff, wow, just a great energetic and enjoyable vibe, demonstrated by dancers and felt by the audience.
Rather than breaking down each ST (Storyteller) oh, by the way, weren’t we all taught not to “Tell Stories” when we were young kids growing up! Lol! Of course, that is in regards to lying to parents and teachers. Here, Satori, encourages and helps develop this realm around true events that have occurred in the lives of the performers. In all of our lives, meaningful events have some common elements: happiness and/or sadness, tragedy or comedy, victory or loss, with a lesson learned.
The fine gentleman of Father’s and Figures shared from the heart events that obviously shook them to some serious degree, that left an imprint. Within, we find the lessons that either we surely personally identify with or can clearly see how the Storyteller experienced it, rolling with the laughter or shedding a quiet tear with the Orator. Most every story ended with some element of take away learning and something we as the audience can celebrate with the Storytellers. That feeling is exuberating and often leaves new commonalities amongst all the people present.
Far from Virgin, a most thankful offender found frequently enjoying an evening at Twisted Storytelling, with my appreciation, David Silverman
