Nell's stories are told (not read!) – call it traditional storytelling or oral or fabulous old stories re-told: Nell’s performance storytelling creates a rich and sociable event in a limitless variety of spaces.  

Nell aims to excite extraordinary images in the minds of the listeners and take them on a wild ride through known and little-told stories. Traditional storytelling connects powerfully with contemporary audiences whilst honouring the traditional spirit and tone of the tale.

Storytelling is an entertainment, a shared experience and a spur to the imagination. Through myths, folktales, legends, epics and fairytales we find a means to a deeper understanding of each other and ourselves.

Stories live in your blood and bones... and light candles on the darkest nights.

Patti Davis

We want a story that starts with earthquakes and works its way up to a climax.

Samuel Goldwyn
