Through sadness, we sang; we sang a lot

Valeria Palmertree lost her mother and shortly thereafter her father. Her loss led her to tell this story.

Valeria joined us during our NEON Festival collaboration with ViBe Story Exchange. The night featured storytelling with a creative twist. After telling their stories, the storytellers were followed by an artist presenting an interpretation of the story they just told.

Artist Christopher Revels interpreted Valaria’s story with a painting.

About Tell Me More… Live Storytelling: Everyone has a story, and there are plenty of storytelling events and podcasts around the world to showcase them. We’re not that different – except we tell stories mostly from a small stage in a mid-size military town. See the show regularly at the Push Comedy Theater in Norfolk, Va. As a hat tip to the improv theater, each show has a one-word theme. For upcoming shows, please find the schedule here. If you have a story you think fits one of the upcoming themes, sign up here.
