Museums and Galleries
Listening to stories in a unique space, beside a special object or painting, awakens the imagination. Pomme has been working with museums, galleries, archives and collections for more than 30 years – researching, creating and bringing collections and exhibitions to life through engaging narrative performance. She sees her role as a guide to the imagination, taking the audience inside an object or collection to reveal hidden worlds of culture, history and myth. Allowing audiences to look deeply whilst listening to a story ignites the imagination, enabling audiences to dream into the object and discover the past.
Pomme has: created and led promenade performances through galleries, heritage sites, and specific places; created performances for exhibitions; facilitated workshops linked to artefacts and collections, and led staff training in storytelling and creative writing skills for museums and galleries.
