Every summer Dominic works for several weeks in the school, passing on stories and physical performance techniques to inspire a new generation of young storytellers to stake their claim on the oral telling tradition. The children, from years 3 and 5, work in groups to learn and shape ancient folktales, adding their voices and unique interpretations to those of the thousands who have told these stories across generations. The project culminates with a performance in the Supper Room at The Coro. Marvellous things happen on the way, and star performers emerge. Come and see them.
This event is produced by Furness Tradition, supported by the Sir John Fisher Foundation, CGP Books and the Francis C Scott Trust.
