Festival offers stories from three continents.

Byline: The Register-Guard

Storytellers from Brazil, New York City and Ireland will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Very Little Theatre, 2350 Hilyard St.

For the featured storytellers, who have been visiting local schools this week, the program is the concluding event of the 15th annual Multi-Cultural Storytelling Festival, produced and directed by Robert Rubin- stein.

The storytellers are Antonio Rocha, a native Brazilian now living in Maine; Vared Hankin, who has performed extensively in New York; and Batt Burns of Kerry, Ireland.

Born in Brazil but now living in Maine, Rocha has performed as a storyteller and mime at the Kennedy Center, the National Storytelling Festival, the Singapore Festival of the Arts and the Dunya Festival in the Netherlands.

Hankin has performed in several famed New York venues, including the 92nd Street Y and the Jewish Museum, as well as at the International Fringe Festival and in the Obie Award-winning play, "Performance Space 122."

Hankin has been commissioned by the Jewish Women's Archive to create performance pieces about "Women of Valor."

Burns has told his Irish tales at the National Storytelling Festival, the Corn Island Festival in Kentucky, the Timpanogos Festival in Utah, in New Zealand and at Harvard, Northwestern and Notre Dame universi- ties.

The storytelling event is recommended for ages 10 and older. Admission is $8, or $20 for a family of four.
