“You must come back and tell us more stories because it makes us feel special. You have filled our heads with lots of good story writing ideas. Please come back soon.”
As a storyteller I respond directly to my audience creating intimate tellings for small groups and using a more physical style of performance when working with larger groups. I tell stories to audiences of all ages; in schools, art galleries, residential homes, museums, theatres and bookshops. I create storytelling performances for specific events or responding to a particular theme.
I design and facilitate storytelling workshops, these workshops include story building excercises, using different stimuli to inspire stories from objects to postcards, improvisation, exploring the characters in a story, using well known stories as a starting point, drama, movement and visualisation.
