Storytelling with Kate Corkery
And Special Guest Sarah Rundle
Bar Open 7pm
Kate is an Irish storyteller with a background in acting, singing and language teaching. Born and educated in Cork, she originally left Ireland to work in Kenya, after which she moved to Europe, performing in a variety of theatres before joining UK-based Common Lore, a company of storyteller/musicians from different folkloric backgrounds.
On a wet Manchester evening, Sarah Rundle escaped into a warm performance café, and discovered Storytelling. She’s been nattering ever since – tales from Britain, China, the Middle East, Italy, and the Silk Road.
She has devised works for the British Council, Wellcome Foundation, Geffrye Museum, and the National Trust, and performed at Stockholm’s Fabula Story Café, the Nivesh Festival, Delhi, and Festival at the Edge.
Her work has been described by Ben Haggarty as “truly magical…..it sparkles with a particularly glorious English humour
