Award winning storyteller/writer/teacher Robin Bady has been performing nationally and internationally for the last 30 years. Her work is grounded in the values she was taught growing up: Do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with thy God.
Based in Brooklyn, NY, she performs at countless spoken word venues, Fringe Festivals and storytelling festivals. Her children’s work is featured at major museums, schools, theaters, libraries and parks.Robin is the founder and curator of “No, We Won’t Shut Up!” - a powerful project showcasing the voices of a diverse group of women speaking about racism, bigotry, wage theft, sexual assault and gentrification. You can see and hear Robin nearly every month in Brooklyn hosting the BADYHouse Storytelling Concerts.
Robin is currently touring her solo show - “Nancy Drewinsky and the Search for the Missing Letter” – a story about McCarthyism, anti-Semitism and her family.
Robin received a BFA from the Professional Actor Training Program at New York University. She was a co-founder of the Bread and Roses Theater; founded the Organic Youth Theater, Chicago and the Children's Theater Workshop of the 92nd Street Y; founded the multi-ethnic storytelling ensemble Shirazad's Children; and she is past Director of the Storytelling Center of New York City.
She is published in Storytelling Across the Curriculum and Storytelling Magazine. Her recent CD, “Stories, Stories, Stories”, was made with her partners The RagTag Band – instrument builder Skip LaPlante and violinist Concetta Abbate. She is the recipient of the JJ Reneaux Emerging Artist Award and the Oracle Award for Leadership and Service for the MidAtlantic Region of NSN, as well three Su-CASA grants for work with seniors.
Robin was wonderful to watch as she brought the stories to life through movement, gestures and character voices. She held the interest of the smallest child to the parents in the audience. She is a warmhearted performer who brought joy to our community. We thank her for sharing her gift of storytelling with us! Eileen Langsdorf, Southamptonn Parks and Recreation Dept.
