This paper presents studies and theoretical/practical reflections occurred from the master's research in the Graduate Program in Performing Arts - PPGAC about storytelling at school, with a view to investigate, using a/r/tography, how storytelling, as an art/educational proposition in the scene, can generate learning and senses in the perceptual development of students in the last year of elementary school. Through the metaphor of the traveling teacher, we created narratives trying to synthesize the trip/investigation. Other questions arose along the way: How to tell stories? What stories to tell? Are teachers storytellers? Who is Aunt Cecília? The choice of Art-Based Educational Research and a/r/tography as a methodological approach brought the concept of the in-between place artist/researcher/teacher, a hybrid place. As a qualitative approach, it presents itself as a conceptual commitment linked to the renderings: contiguity, metaphor and metonymy, Living Research, community of practice, openings, excesses andreverberations. (DIAS and IRWIN, 2013). By the adverse condition of the Covid-19 pandemic, the journey happened through the Internet, inspired by the poetics of José Saramago's Traveler's Luggage (1996), passing through groups of storytellers, video storytelling productions or cybernarratives (BUSATTO, 2013). The journey generated links with other storytellers for the field research, composing a community of practice (IRWIN, 2013). Among the narratives emerged memories, perceptions, searches about the origin / belonging, to finally make a virtual art/educational proposition with a group of children thinking about bringing up aesthetic experiences developed with the child protagonism. Our theoretical work was developed on references such as Benjamin (2018), Bedran (2012), Machado (1989; 2015), Dewey (2010), Dias and Irwin (2013), Desgranges (2018), Kramer (2006), Decico (2006) and others. We conducted storytelling workshops to share moments of fruition with 9- to 11-year-old students from a full-time school. Even with the virtual presence, the children enjoyed moments full of imagination, delicacy and protagonism until they felt confident to read or tell in public. The dissertation is divided in acts, allusive to the poetics of the Scene. The reverberations of this art/educational work in the form of a virtual trip were strongly felt in the teacher/artist/researcher formation that, in due time, started to sow written and told stories wherever it was possible to go. The learnings were constituted thinking about the triangular approach: reading/appreciating, contextualizing, and making Art. The a/r/tography as methodology and analysis will make the path possible to be thought as a process/path of artistic constitution of the traveling teacher, learning to be a storyteller in community.
