Storytelling Peformances for Adults

 

Magical, mesmerising and often with a dark twist to the tale these performances have been crafted with an adult audience in mind. Often in collaboration  with musicians from a range of backgrounds and sometimes involving an element of mask.

These shows are adaptable feasts of words, sounds and visuals. They sit comfortably in book shops, museums, libraries as well as more traditional performance spaces and festivals.
In addition to the full length shows I also tell collections of tales from my repertoire to adult audiences and can create something special for your party or event. All work is suitable for ages 14+.

—————————————-

I offer a range of storytelling packages, which you can view and book below, but please do get in touch with your particular requirements, as all my packages are designed to be adaptable.
