Listen to tell

An artistic look at ethnological research

The ETNO Library and the Valencian Association of Anthropology invite you to participate on 29 September at 6 p.m. in Comboi i Antropologia: Listen to tell. An artistic look at ethnological research

We have two very special guests: Almudena Francés and Tània Muñoz, two Valencian storytellers who know how to tell very well because they know how to listen very well: "Professional oral storytelling has been nourished, to a large extent, by the compilations of stories and materials made by folklorists. But on the other hand, there are professional storytellers who also have an artistic interest in these spontaneous storytellers and their stories. The written versions of the stories do not keep the way of telling, the silences, the relationship created with the audience... in short, all the elements that form the backbone of artistic communication. We have a passion for stories, we go in search of aesthetic enjoyment and we understand storytelling as a communal art that is continually recreated and of which we can all be a part, because we all have a story to tell and a way of telling it.
"Pos señor..." We come to tell you how we do this task of research, artistic involvement and social transfer".

Almudena Francés is dedicated to telling and listening to stories but also to life stories, riddles, tongue twisters, she does it from the Vall d'Albaida, her stories are linked to a specific territory, although she also tells stories from far away as if they had happened in the Vall d'Albaida, because stories don't know about territories. What she is most proud of in her work is the project Cuentos a la Fresca, in which a local storyteller relies on professional storytellers, who suggest a way of being and being in the world and create anchors for people to hold on to.


Tània Muñoz Marzà is an oral storyteller. She tells stories in her own voice for young and old in schools, cultural centres and town squares. She is currently working on a doctoral thesis on the narrative folklore of Castelló, although her artistic work is also influenced by written literature and a vivid imagination. She has coordinated several cultural projects such as Ellas habitan la ciudad (MUCC) or Minúscula, arte&infancia (MBAC). She has been the creator and artistic coordinator of Conta'M. Festival de cuentos al Maestrat.
