Traditional Storytelling

Fables, Folk tales, Riddles, Myths and Legends for Everyone......

Traditional storytelling breaths new life and understanding into contemporary situations and the puzzles and beauty that life holds for us all in today's world. Through these ancient wisdoms we can deepen the sense of community within ourselves, with each other, and the world that we live in. Traditional tales can celebrate and give expression to life's experiences and the inner world of creativity and the imagination. Ancient tales have the ability to weave together the past and present while giving us insights that enable us to move towards the future.

Ariane draws together ancient stories and tales from around the world that come alive as she leads you through worlds, and into the Dreamtime of the creatures and characters that inhabit them. Whether listening to the ancient tales of Sumeria, The Welsh cycle of the Mabinogion, the Finnish Kalevala or African Trickster Tales we can respectfully celebrate our differences while finding our common humanity at the heart of each story. 


Performances can be aimed at all ages whether young or old are held in all sorts of places at all sorts of events. These include theatres, arts centres, museums, festivals, historic sites, schools or in wild places.
