EAU CLAIRE -- Ken Corsbie, a Caribbean storyteller, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 7, in Riverside Theatre of the Fine Arts Center at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
The event is free and open to the public.
Corsbie, born in Guyana, initiated and directed the first-ever Caribbean Storytelling Festival. He also originated and coordinated an Association of Caribbean Dramatists.
Corsbie said he hopes to focus his experiences and skills as a storyteller in a receptive and analytical atmosphere during his visit to UW-Eau Claire as a visiting scholar. Corsbie also wants to increase students' knowledge of multicultural education in the music and theatre arts department, especially in storytelling, poetry reading and children's theater.
Corsbie will perform Derek Walcott's fantasy, "Ti-Jean and His Brothers," at a Brown Bag Lunch at noon on Friday, April 3, in the Tamarack Room of Davies Center. Discussion will follow Corsbie's performance, and refreshments will be served.
UW-Eau Claire's music and theatre arts department sponsored his visit.
