Storyteller Emily Hennessey and singer-
presented their new production
"Fell to Fire"
Cumbria is a treasure-
Performance storyteller Emily has performed around the world and with her Swedish background, Emily also loves to tell Scandinavian folktales and Norse mythology.
Recent performances include a tour of India with the British Council, the Royal Opera House, the Viking Ship Museum in Denmark, Soho Theatre, Richmix and Beyond the Border Storytelling Festival.
In creating Fell to Fire, Emily and Kirsten ran workshops to find stories from Cumbrians and, in planning the show, they went on many walks and explored interesting places across the region. Kirsten says: "We met lovely people along the way, ready to part with interesting local facts and fiction. We found some great places on purpose and by accident, only managing to get a lost once, but in doing so we found a beautiful place near Urswick where trees grew from the cracks in the limestone."
