            • El Bibliobandido Around The World

              This is a PROJECT VIDEO introducing El Bibliobandido (or “story thief” in English), a masked bandit who eats stories. Ravenous, he terrorizes little kids until they offer him stories they’ve written. The living legend that is El Bibliobandido was born from a collaboration in 2010 between artist Marisa Morán Jahn and a library committee in El Pital, a village in Northern Honduras with an 80% illiteracy rate. To avert calamity — or perhaps to lure him — kids in El Pital have since prepared a monthly harvest of stories and spread the legend to 500 kids in 19 surrounding villages who invent new characters and episodes. Other communities around the world who feel they also need a Bibliobandido have joined in on the fray, cultivating their collective appetite for a good story. As George Bataille reminds us, “Man does not live by bread alone, but also by the comedies with which he willingly deceives himself.”

                    Over the last two decades, the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts has paired youth engagement, the study of local history & heritage and creative, dramatic self-expression through its signature History Comes Alive! program. In partnership with the Shelburne Museum, the Ethan Allen Homestead, Shelburne Farms and the Rokeby Museum, the Flynn has offered a youth summer program in which youth spend a week learning about and dramatizing the lives of people from a particular era in Vermont. Through improvisation, students develop real and fictional costumed characters who respond to the challenges of the time, a process that augments understanding of and a passion for history.
