Usually performing a selection of folk tales and myths, in a unique contemporary style, tales can be crafted to highlight certain themes or stimulate curiosity.
Although working with many tales from Scotland, and Northern Europe, we tell tales from around the world when the time and setting is right.
Recent performances have focused on “Home and Belonging”, “Nature and the Supernatural”, “Kinship”, “Enforced migration” and “Shapeshifting”.
Recent performances have taken place at prominent storytelling festivals such as the Scottish International Storytelling Festival and Festival at the Edge, storytelling clubs across the UK and Northern Ireland, and Europe from Berlin to Vilnius.
More commonly are performances in schools and museums, contemporary events and celebrations.
Specific shows include:
Supernatural: Wonder Tales from Scotland Scottish myths and legends spanning the natural and supernatural

Engaging audiences of one to many hundreds, storytelling is a diverse medium that in Scotland is said to be best delivered “eye to eye, mind to mind, heart to heart”. This is our philosophy regardless of scale, and allows performances to be crafted and tailored to suit clients, events and organisations.
