Storytelling offers the audience and the teller the opportunity to share some unique rewards. This makes it an energising and rewarding activity for me - and I hope for my audiences too!

My Top 10 reasons

We sometimes forget
what a powerful gift that is.

I am sure that, at the dawn

of civilization, when hunters went out to kill a mammoth on which their clan would have to live for the next six months, some man, not necessarily one of the shrewdest when it came to tracking the beast or the bravest when the animal was cornered, returned at night to sit by the campfire and relate

the incidents of that day.

He told of the bird that guided his hunt; he told of the heroic resolution of the prey, noble and defensive with skills not encountered before;

he identified the men who led the assault and the one on whom all depended when it seemed the mammoth would escape;

and this fireside narrator lent that day a glory that it could never otherwise have gained.”

What’s so special

The teller looks into the eyes of the audience and makes a connection. This is totally unlike theatre, where actors spend most of the time pretending the audience is not there!
