Storyteller and writer, Muriel Bloch will be in Singapore this week during the Storytelling Festival, which is organised every year by the Book Council. Muriel lives in Paris and has told stories since 1979, when she led a workshop at the Centre Georges Pompidou and was caught by the act of storytelling. Muriel has an eclectic repertoire  coming from the whole world and tells to all audiences. She was also involved in the production of the documentary “Il était une fois des conteurs” (Storytellers…Once upon a Time) in 2001 and spearheads many initiatives for the promotion of performance art and storytelling in Paris.
