Feminist Storytelling is a community theatre and storytelling platform based in Bergen, Norway. The organisation is in cooperation with Litteraturhuset i Bergen, and their events are curated by different volunteers, artists and storytellers monthly.
“We empower community members by “listening without judgement, storytelling without fear.”
We have been working with physical and verbal storytelling in our workshops, and we are open to people bringing in different media types. Feminist Storytelling is creating a theatre production at the moment —”Feminist Storytelling: vagina monologues”, a play written by you, the feminist storytellers in Bergen, and staged together by Director Yimin Dong for spring 2023.
Feminist Storytelling: Vagina monologues is coming to Bergen in March 2023.
