BhuFeSto: A Storytelling Festival For Differently-Abled Children

It was a celebration of storytelling at "BhuFeSto", an international storytelling festival. The festival was organised for the differently-abled children with visual and hearing disabilities in Bhubaneswar on Monday.

Artist Deepa Kiran performed the Ramayana through musical storytelling with a twist while children thoroughly enjoyed the musical narration. The artists used both verbal as well as Indian sign language for storytelling.

"The idea was to create a special performance for the deaf and also to sensitise the hearing people to change their perception of the deafness as a disability and understand their capability;' said Deepa Kiran.

Manganiars, a group of musicians from Rajasthan narrated stories, with their musical performance, about kings and culture using instruments like Kartal, Kamaicha and Morchan.

Sujit Mahapatra, Director of the festival expressed his gratitude towards the Bhubaneswar Development Authority and government for hosting the programme focusing on children.

He also said that “the inclusive nature of the festival will contribute significantly to the aspiration of Bhubaneswar to be a child-friendly smart city.”

The Indian storytellers were accompanied by the magical performances by several international storytellers such as Paula Martin a storyteller from Argentina, Sabrina Raushan from France, Wajuppa Todas from Thailand, Wangari Grace from Kenya shared their culture and stories.
