3rd Annual Young Native Storyteller Festival

This May 3-5th, 2018, the Yale Indigenous Performing Arts Program (YIPAP) will host its 3rd annual Young Native Storyteller Festival. The Festival features the work of this year’s national contest winners, including playwright Everett George (Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribe), musician Vonica LaPlante (MHA Nation); dancer Charlize Arcoren (Sicangu Lakota); as well as spoken word artists Teanna Hart (Sicangu Lakota) and Zoey White (Oglala Lakota).

This year’s Festival will be supplemented by additional workshops and public readings of two established Native writers, playwright Reed Adair Bobroff (Navajo Nation)—whose play won the 1st Annual YIPAP Young Native Storytellers Contest two years ago—and screenwriter Ryan Redcorn (Osage Nation).

A staged reading of Bobroff’s play, “A Fraction of Love,” will be presented on May 3 at 7:00pm, a reading of Ryan Redcorn’s new screenplay, “I Hate You Jimmie Bacon Iron,” will be presented on May 4 at 7:00pm, and the public performance featuring this year’s winners will take place on May 5 at 7:00 pm.
