Storytelling is the oldest and most immediate form of theatre. The economy of the human voice evokes worlds in the listeners’ imagination. No two performances are the same, the listeners’ response feeds the storyteller’s creativity. This intimate and vital exchange continually renews the story. Sally Pomme Clayton is a storytelling pioneer and her performances are electrifying.
‘Your stories were truly mesmerizing! A real highlight of the day.’ Royal Opera House
“Londonist has been lucky enough to see her in action: the awestruck faces, delighted giggles, eyes wide in wonder… and that’s just the adults in the audience!” The Londonist.
Sally Pomme Clayton loves fairytales and myths – narratives that were passed by word of mouth for generations before being written down. She believes the richly metaphorical stories of the oral tradition are a way of connecting to the voices of our ancestors, receiving something, re-making it, keeping it alive, and passing it on. Pomme tells stories in libraries, sitting rooms, museums, class rooms, theatres, festivals, galleries, places of worship, halls, gardens, barns, playgrounds …. anywhere! She performs for adults, children and a mix of both! Her performances range from 20 minutes to 2 hours. She has a vast repertoire of stories to create a spellbinding performance for your venue and audience. You can choose from one of her captivating and beautifully composed performances, some are solo and some are collaborations with musicians. She can even create a bespoke performance for your event.
