- Pulse and Other Queer Heartbeats
- Curated for the Budapest Pride Festival,
this collection of tales will focus on the exceptional
beauty and resilience of LGBTQ hearts. Pulling from both
traditional folklore and original tales, these are saucy and
poignant stories for adult ears.
- Accompanying interactive workshop about the use of new
trad stories to increase LGBTQ representation and address
some of the gaps in more traditional folklore.
- Who Run The World?
- Stories of doughty damsels, powerful princesses,
lionhearted ladies, and gutsy girls. This collection of
traditional folktales, fractured fairytales, and new trad
stories features fierce women getting things done.
(Adaptable for both younger crowds and raucous adults
enjoying gin and tonics)
- Once More With Feeling!
- This program contains traditional folktales with
enormous amounts of audience participation! All of the
stories in this program have opportunities for story
listeners to become part of the story through clapping,
singing, moving, call and response, and more. (All ages.)
- Little Shivers
- With some coaxing, Danielle can be convinced to tell
scary stories and ghosty stories. Though she loves the
thrill, sometimes she even scares herself, and has to
spend the next several nights sleeping with the lights on.
It's normal. (All ages.)
- Let's Get Persona
- Personal stories in the style of The Moth or Porchlight
Storytelling Series. These stories are "true as remembered,"
showcasing Danielle's joyful and self-deprecating sense of humor.
Highlights include a lesbian pulp address book, an encounter
with the Bug Man, a surprising discovery at fat camp, and the
moment Danielle realized that being related to doctors did not,
in fact, make her in any way medically qualified. This
collection includes some language that may be classified as
"sailor-mouthed," so...college age and adult audiences.
- Accompanying interactive workshop on finding and
crafting your own personal story.
- In another life, Danielle was a competitive performance
poet in Austin, Texas, where she was known for her
narrative-style slam poetry. This is a collection of slam
poems from that time of snaps and callouts. These are stories
in poem form, told with Danielle's distinctive rhythm and
wordplay...the puns in this program have run amok. (Adult audiences.)
- Potchke and Schmaltz
- An assortment of Jewish folktales, Chelm stories, and nigunim. (This program is in development.)
