Gimistory wows Brackers

Gimistory, the international storytelling festival of the Cayman Islands, now in its 14th year, kicked off this past weekend in the Sister Islands of Little Cayman and Cayman Brac on Saturday, 26 November.

With palms fronds gently waving, the stage behind Scott Development’s headquarters was perfectly framed and the cool northeasterly winds ensured the comfort of the approximately 300-strong audience members that came out to partake of the evening’s cultural kaleidoscope.

International performers such as Amina Blackwood-Meeks, the Storycrafters, David Bereaux & Friends, Black Sage, Ken Corsbie, Slash Coleman, Sheila Payne and of course the Brac’s own master storyteller and entertainer Quincy Brown gave a ninety minute show covering everything from Anansi to Pirates.

The customary, free Fish ‘n Frittas and Swanky, prepared by Mrs. Joy Comrie and the culinary team from the Layman Scott Senior High School, this year for the first time was entered and judged in the Best of Cayman sponsored Gimistory district competition.

The show tours all the districts of Grand Cayman, where audiences can expect a bountiful serving of the cultural delights from the Best of the Best storytellers from the region and from as far away as Alaska.

All performances begin at 7pm and you can catch the stories on Friday, 2 December at West Bay Public Beach and at Smith’s Barcadere, George Town on Saturday, 3 December.
