• Saturdays at the Centaur

    ON OCT. 21 – On select Saturday mornings throughout the season at the Centaur Theatre, young children and their families enjoy affordable and engaging live performances by some of Montreal’s best talent for kids.

    This Saturday, from 10:30 AM to Noon you are invited to enjoy TUUP: See the Jaguar: Stories of the Rainforest from Intercultural Story Telling Festival (Ages 5 and up).

    The Montreal Intercultural Storytelling Festival is an international event that brings in outstanding storytellers from around the world to share the art of oral storytelling with Montreal audiences. Guyanese-British storyteller TUUP will tell stories from his native Guyana as well as from around the world. Listen…Close your eyes…See the jaguar and listen to the tale of the snake king.

    Born to Guyanese parents and raised in Acton, West London, TUUP has been a professional storyteller since 1981. Truly an elder of the storytelling revival in Britain, his style is one of total improvisation, unbounded charisma and alarming spontaneity. His fabulous capacity for mimicry and ear for a wild story is outstanding. TUUP has travelled the world extensively, telling stories all over Europe and in both Northern and Southern Africa.

    Ticket Prices: Adults: $8.00 Children: $6.00

    The Centaur is at 453 St. François-Xavier near Old Montreal.
