Suitable for schools and community, festivals and celebrations.
Our expert storytellers will spin a fine yarn and draw audiences into a web of magic, mystery and transformation.
Tales of trickster animals, myths about monsters, gods and goddesses, legends about ancient places.
We draw on traditional tales from the British Isles and from around the world – see Cultural Diversity. Whatever the story, we tell it in our unique style, combining creative language with simple performance and percussion.
Finally, we usually involve the audience in developing the story as a shared narrative, using their own creative ideas, and acting it out.
Choose from traditional Tales from India, Africa, Latin America, Australia – as well as the British Isles and Ireland.
We have special programmes involving stories from these countries/continents, enhanced by authentic artefacts and traditional instruments.
Our Mexican programme includes the Aztec legend of the volcanoes, Popocatepetl and Ixtaccihuatl and how the gods finally gave chocolate to human beings.
