There is a place where power crackles through all things:
Broken bodies can become whole,
Thoughts can be heard, old bones speak
And even rocks want revenge.
Here we stumble through shape-shifting worlds on a journey to the edge of the earth .Be prepared to encounter all things earthy, brutal and bold in this brilliant weaving of worldwide trickster tales.
Nell Phoenix is a mercurial and captivating performer who tells in a way that is both commanding and strangely liberating. Her storytelling has been described as ‘feral, sophisticated.. Engrossing and fabulous.’
Nells tells stories all over the world to all ages. She runs courses, classes and workshops and is a passionate promoter of storytelling as a contemporary performance art. She runs StoryNight at Torriano, a popular grassroots storytelling club in north London.
