On Sunday 10th March in the Casa do Povo in Santa Estevao, a few people met together to listen to the Brazilian storyteller Thomas Bakk.  He is a passionate, funny, clever storyteller who engages the audience by occasionally involving them in the story.  He tells stories, with his body and face.  He has a big grin and large eyes which hold your attention.   He sings and plays a tambourine as the stories progress.  He creates a relaxed friendly atmosphere.  He also provides opportunities for the audience to come forward and tell their stories.  One woman Maria do Rosario told old stories from the village.
