Gimistory, Cayman’s international storytelling festival, is drawing to a close. It began last weekend in West Bay and during the course of the week, storytellers have been entertaining audiences with their clever tales in each of the districts across all three of the Cayman Islands. It’s not over yet though – there are still two performances to catch.
Tonight is a special one-off all youth performance, brought to you by members of the Cayman National Cultural Foundation youth theatre programme, Young at Arts.
It’s going to be an exciting evening of storytelling from some the youngest performers in Cayman. Young at Arts members Jevaughnie Ebanks and Oksana Miller will be emceeing and there will singing, dancing and acting in different accents and dialects from Tariah Lemay and Alisha Forbes, plus some scary stuff from Ocean Costa. There will be other performances from the talented young storytellers, as well as singing from the Montessori by the Sea School Choir.
Then tomorrow, Saturday, 1 December, the festival draws to a close with the George Town event, which takes place at Smith Cove beginning at 7pm.
Performers from around the world will be taking part. David Bearaux, Blacksage and Amina Blackwood-Meeks are always crowd favourites and this year the festival welcomes four new storytellers, two of whom (Lady Rabia and Valeska Borden) are from Cayman.
Fish fry, fritters and swanky is served at the end of the show and admission is free.
