“Once upon a time…there was a traveler between worlds, a wandering-wondering minstrel, a maggid of sorts, a high-energy professional storyteller…and his name was Jordan Hill.”
That’s how you’ll be greeted when you go to Jordan’s website. Not only is he a storyteller with specialties in astronomy and Jewish stories, he’s also an educator in Jewish studies & math, plays a number of instruments in jazz, rock & klezmer bands and can do it all in 3 languages!
His versatility is showcased in the range of offerings he has listed on his website: party storytelling, storytelling workshops, custom story creation, living history, group drama activities and group musical improv (jam sessions / drum circles). He even has a weekly Jewish storytelling segment on “Too Jewish Radio”, on KVOI AM 690.
Tucson is now the home of this world traveler. Sheila Wilensky chronicled some of his history in her April 3, 2009 article in the Arizona Jewish Post. You might have caught him telling on the storytelling stage of the Festival of Books and you’ve got some other opportunities to see him in action coming up. He’ll be performing at the following venues:
March 27, 1 p.m. – Water Tales at The Water Project
April 10, 2 p.m., Green Tales for a Blue Planet: Old Stories to Guide our New Way with the World Biosphere2
April 11, 1 p.m., Wandering Animal Tales throughout the zoo, Reid Park Zoo
April 17, 11 a.m., Animal Stories for Earth Day: Reid Park Zoo
