                • introduce you to a variety of tellers.
                • enable you to enjoy many Asian stories.
                • offer valuable demonstrations of different ways of sharing a story.
                • give you the chance to compare versions of the same story, and see how each teller has crafted their own version.
                • watch a selection of tales told in mother tongue.
