This case study illustrates how multilingual storytelling strategies were investigated in the context of ‘Golden Merganser: Story Promenade’ on 1 October 2011 in the City of Turku. Experiments in oral multilingual storytelling represent an intercultural practice. The artistic work was informed by Guattari’s critical theory of three ecological registers. The storytellers investigated multilingual storytelling strategies through artistic work. The outcome of the project suggests that the essence of telling a narrative is to experience the world of the narrative. The multilingual storytellers need to establish the same world, dream the same dream, make dramaturgical work, and engage in music improvisation with different languages. Multilingual storytelling practice helps to encounter foreign languages with curiosity and interest and offer possibilities for strengthening multilingual identity construction.
