Award-winning storyteller Robin Bady has a deep love of language and a facility for it that shows in everything she does. Storyteller, actress, teacher, director, writer, director of two youth theaters, Robin performs and teaches throughout the United States, China and Europe at festivals, theaters, schools, universities, libraries, museums, after-schools, cafes, bars, parks, etc.
Her repertoire is wide ranging, from folklore to fairy tales, true ghost stories to historic tales, literature to science, Jewish tales to world tales – and everything in between. Her favorite stories are the ones she is telling, or the ones she is listening to. She collaborates with cartoonists and musicians. Her recent CD, “Some Folk Stories and a Couple of Rootabagas”, was made with the RagTag Band – instrument builder Skip LaPlante and violinist Concetta Abbate.
Robin has written, produced and toured in three long shows: “Nancy Drewinsky, or, The Search for the Missing Letter”, “Every Day is Basil Houpis Day”, and “My Mother, and Other Commentators.”
Robin is published in Storytelling Across the Curriculum and Storytelling Magazine. Currently, she is a co-founder of The National G.H.O.S.T. Project, which teaches young people to research, write and perform ghost stories. Robin hosts the BADYHouse Storytelling Concerts in Brooklyn and curates the annual Governor’s Island Storytelling Festival in New York Harbor.
She is the recipient of the JJ Reneaux Emerging Artist Award and the Oracle Award for Leadership and Service for the MidAtlantic Region of NSN.
She lives in Brooklyn with her husband Tom, an educator and a poet, and her two cats – Inanna Queen of Heaven and Earth (Nonnie) and William Butler Yeats (Willie.)
