He was the Storyteller in Residence at the University of Manitoba and is recognized by Storytellers of Canada as a Master Storyteller, Rob draws on his background as an Educational Programs Developer at the Manitoba Museum and as a Professor in the Tourism Department of l’Université de St. Boniface to delight audiences through storytelling, music and song.
TiBert le Voyageur is at once a historically based character, a living role model, and a cartoon hero; he simultaneously captures the imagination of spectators of all ages. An engaging mixture of juggling, storytelling, improvisation, humour, interactive plays, sing-along songs, historical musical instruments, traditional costuming and props, beatboxing, in either or both Canadian official languages describes a TiBert show. The audience is engaged in a shared experience from which a common Canadian identity is created and cherished for a lifetime. Malo has been a part of the Folklorama family for over 10 years.
