TELLING TALES WITH CRANKIES
with INES ZELLER BASS
Co-Founding Artistic Director of Sandglass Theater
A crankie is an old storytelling art form that has recently become hot again. A long illustrated scroll is wound around two spools and set into a box with a viewing window. The scroll is hand cranked, the unfolding story narrated, sung or just accompanied by music. Participants will build their own crankie and create their own story. If you love to express yourself in a beautiful and pure way without technical bells and whistles the crankie will be your best and loving friend.
