Olive Hackett-Shaughnessy is a storyteller, writer, workshop leader and curriculum consultant in San Francisco, where she has been an artist-in-residence in public and private schools since She has brought the joy and magic of storytelling to countless children and grown-ups over the past three decades, preserving and transmitting this ancient yet relevant art form through transformative and engaging live performances and high-quality recordings.
In this technological age, the energetic bond that was once felt on a front porch or around the hearth is often forgotten. By contrast, told stories are embodied with sound, long silent pauses and punctuating gestures.
Being present for a story in community is a sensual experience. Laughter and play are always included, along with the skills needed to tell your own story. Visit Olive's CDs for her recordings.
