The role of the storyteller is unique. It demands an uncanny sense of embodied language moving in space between teller and listener; a strong sense of presence and awareness that guides the listener into a rich response; and a recognition of the shape of the story vivid in the unfolding event itself. Understanding the dynamics of engaged storytelling †keeps alive the living magic of connection for ourselves, and others, and the natural world.¬†It can address some of the great issues of our times.¬†In that way storytelling is¬†medicine. It touches at the root of causes and obstacles.¬† Otherwise, it is literal recitation that entertains and informs conceptually. ¬†We will work together on a single story and engage with a step by step series of activities that empower the storyteller to work with the intangible and potent aspects of spoken attuned storytelling as delight and repair in our world today.¬
Come Strut Your Stuff - open floor poetry and acoustic music on the first Monday of every month at the Egg Cafe! (or on second Monday of the month when the first Monday clashes with a Bank Holiday).

The centrepiece is an Iraqi Kurdish Jewish tale. ¬†¬†REJOICE is sprinkled with folk stories, wisdom tales and events from Laura‚Äôs life.
