Art of the Story 2015 performer spotlight - Judith Black

Judith Black
Judith Black brings to her storytelling a varied background in education, theater, and creative writing. Having studied at Wheelock College, she taught for several years before moving to London to study at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.

She excels in the retelling of history from new perspectives, tickling familial dysfunction, and ironic explorations of aging. Featured on such stages as the Montreal Comedy Festival, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Art Museum of Cape Town, she has appeared ten times at the National Storytelling Festival, and is the winner of storytelling’s most coveted prize, the Oracle Award. Last year she took the craft of American storytelling abroad to France, Sweden, and Finland. Judith's work is dedicated to keeping storytelling alive.

Judith will be performing at the following 2015 Art of the Story events:
