Marta Singh

A member of Ottawa Storyteller’s Marta Singh will share Naked Narrative, a poetically naughty story about building character through the beauty of the blackbird.
Born and raised in Argentina, Marta is renowned for the skill of her crafting, her poetic use of language, her unique expressiveness and her passion of presence. Her one-woman shows lend language, body and voice to what comes forth when universal folklore and literature cross paths with personal narrative. Marta performs in English and Spanish across South and North America. Off the stage, she ardently facilitates her art to awaken the power of story as a transformative thinking tool and as a language capable of distilling experience and information into utterly memorable, meaningful narrative.
