David Gonzalez with pianist Daniel Kelly
Award-winning storyteller, musician and poet David Gonzalez creates and performs productions that capture audiences of all ages and cultures. In Aesop Bops! he serves up a trio of fast-paced and funny stories packed with opportunities for audience participation. Aesop’s classic The Lion and the Mouse, The Fisherman and His Wife, based on a Grimm’s fairy tale and The Turtle’s Shell, a combination of an Aesop fable and a South American folktale, make for a full meal. This feast of funky, physical storytelling accompanied by Daniel Kelly on the keyboard, leaves young audiences feeling like they just performed the show too!
"David Gonzalez speaks with courageous humanity and brilliant creativity - his poetry and stories uplift the spirit and inspire wonder."
