An unrequited love, a sip of whiskey, undisturbed sleep, an unborn child, a warming hug, a bite of a fresh strawberry, the sun directly on your skin…. People long for a lot and have many unanswered desires! That is the wonderful theme of The STET Storytelling Festival. From 25 to 27 November, Zaal 3 will be under the spell of storytelling.

For the first show on Sunday, multi award-winning British storyteller James Rowland talks about his desire for friendship. As a lonely, unhappy teenager he met a scary old lady who lived in the spooky house on his street. The two became friends and he helped her with her desire to get high before she died...

Learning to Fly is a new show from James Rowland featuring his captivating mix of theatre, comedy and music. It’s about connection, no matter the obstacles, love’s eternal struggle with time and music’s ability to heal. It’s also about the old lady’s last wish: to get high once before she died.

James Rowland studied at The Drama Centre London. Since 2019, he has played several shows at The Amsterdam Storytelling Festival and built a fan base in The Netherlands.

This show features a Dutch sign language interpreter.
