Storytelling

In 2014, I began experimenting with the ancient art of storytelling and teamed up with Yorkshire-based storyteller Cath Heinemeyer and writer J.Y. Saville to produce fun and informative performances. The initial impetus was provided by York University’s Festival of Ideas and the exploration of a theme: Order & Chaos, Secrets & Discoveries, and Time. Whatever the topic, there are always fascinating stories to share and engage the imagination with.

A list of current projects can be found here. I have attempted a classification, but there are of course overlaps.

If you are interested in a collaboration or a performance, please contact me.
