The intentions of the Story-telling Festival are to give back to the courtyards, gardens and squares their fundamental role as a meeting place for people of different ages and origins, to give words their magic power of weaving distant fates and to give the stories, which have an urgent need to be told, the attention and reception of a public ready to listen to them.As always the various proposals for adults and children will offer a vast panorama of the different artistic tendencies which live together under the genre of story-telling theatre and which converge in the choice to abandon the artifice of the mask and theatre character to regain direct contact with the public.
If you're wondering why store houses in Valais stand on wooden posts with stone plates, or how people in Zermatt earned their living in the time before the rise of tourism or if you wanted to know about the life of the legendary mountain guide Ulrich Inderbinen, who reached the age of 104, you should join a guided tour of the village given by our knowledgeable guides. You will find yourself looking at Zermatt with other eyes.
Time to put your feet up! Sit back, relax and enjoy your evening in the POHO Bar or on the Lakeside Terrace whilst listening to the sounds of South American chill-out music, and help yourself to your hearts content at the snack buffet offering nachos, guacamole and more. What better way to end a hard day's work? On the Lakeside Terrace when the weather is fine.
