Ariane breathes new life into the age-old art of traditional storytelling with a direct, fresh and vibrant approach. She weaves together a physical and embodied style, flute, percussion and a mischevious passion into a storytelling approach that is unique and enthused with a fearless love of life and its mysteries.
She has been telling stories in the UK and abroad for 18 years. She tells tales that make people sigh and laugh out loud, heckle and cheer and whether as a performance storyteller or within an applied storytelling context provides programmes and shows for schools, festivals, arts centers, theatres, museums, historical sites, art galleries, environmental centers, hospitals and event days.
Ariane has worked at leading events and venues across the country including WOMAD Festival, The O2, The Roundhouse Theatre - London, The Dome Theatre - Brighton, Liverpool Children's Festival, South Hill Park Arts Centre - Bracknell, National Trust Properties, Hever Castle, The Geffryes Museum and Jersey Arts Festival.
She has trained widely in traditional storytelling with Ben Haggerty, Shonaleigh Cumbers, and Desmond Jones among others continually honing and developing her skills with a boundless curiosity and keen enthusiasm.
Ariane also offers storytelling workshops for young and old in schools and other educational venues and is available for staff training in education, after-school groups, respite care and businesses.
