"Leave, leave for the 'Verbena' (Fanfare), go do whatever it takes to celebrate life!", my grandma used to say.

My name is Cristina Verbena (Verbena is my stage name and means ‘festival’/’fanfare’ in Spanish).

I am someone who tells stories.

My trade is a joyful one.

It is a gorgeous way of being in life-storytelling.

Faces and bodies that listen, laugh, ask questions…

A manner of discovering ourselves in that changing mirror which tales are.

Thank you for being here.
