The 5th World Folktale Reading/Performance Competition @ our neighborhood
It's 01.15 pm and the show's started. We got to register first before entering the BRICs Hall at our university, HUFS. Eyra signed up and wrote down something on guest book.
The event was held at BRICs Hall, HUFS. This year we did not participate since we already did last year...and became the first winner.!!!
The hall accommodated about 300 people and it's full-house, not to mention those who had to stand in the back rows and alleys.
The show was held by Pureun Community Center, a multicultural Center in our (previous) neighborhood in cooperation with Modu Children's Library.
Participants were families, students, wives, husbands, kids from different countries or simply..anyone with multicultural background who are currently residing in our neighborhood.
Japan, Mongolia, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Uzbekistan, Philippines, Thailand, Iran, and Korea, of course. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to participate again since we did win the competition last year. ^^
We were shown on the clips on the intermission break. I was Green Ogre (Buto Ijo) last year.^^ what a great time that was!!!^-^ Read our story HERE.
Then, as the final act was the collaborative project telling a folktale from Vietnam. The mothers (wives) of international marriage residing in the neighborhood came up together to bring the story alive.
The children loved it since they did live up to their expectation of delivering props and action and stuffs to stir up their imagination.
In fact, the story that they were bringing up was the one that's been read for the children on a regular basis at the library.
Then came the winner announcement. Most of them got appraisal certificate to appreciate their participation. Look at the kids, babies who also took part in the event.
Mongolia team ( a whole family from grandmother to a granddaughter) became the first winner of this competition.
