The Folktale Corner
In this corner I intend to bring from time to time folktales from my repertoire that have no copyrights (either because they were taken from old books that have no more copyrights, or because I collected them from the mouths of informants and have their permission to use them).
I bring the stories in the way I use to tell them in my performances. Fill free to use them in your performances in what ever way you like – the way I tell them, or your way. Please do not publish them in books or internet sites without my permission, but feel free to pass them on to your friends (but don't forget to indicate the source).
