Often as storytellers we chose stories instinctively,  trust our guts to help us with the structure and rhythm of a story, and

rely on charisma to connect with our audiences.  What do we do when we want to challenge our choices, a received understanding of a story

or how we relate to listeners?


  cropped Chwedl logo Through  Storytelling with Archetypes we can refresh our understanding of well-known repertoire, unwrap new stories and develop our own versatile storytelling       voice. The work is physical, vocal and playful - even via Zoom!

   We will work in an encouraging and supportive atmosphere - and be challenged in our practice.

   Participants will need a good grasp of the English language, some storytelling experience and an open and curious mind.


Nell Also Says:

I have developed Storytelling with Archetypes  over years of my own performance, storytelling and training work. I have used it as an inspiration for story work with young students, aspiring and professional storytellers. It is rooted in the work I did with John Wright and Frankie Armstrong nearly 30 years ago when I was working in physical and masked theatre.

I have taught ten week courses in London, and day and half-day introductions in Sweden, Belgium and The Netherlands. This is nourishing work for experienced storytellers.

People are hungry for stories. It is part of our very being.

Without stories we would go mad. Stories can conquer fear, you know. They make the heart larger.
