“There’s magic in that. It’s in the listener, and for each and every ear it will be different, and it will affect them in ways they can never predict. From the mundane to the profound. You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.” ― Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus
Stories reveal far more than they tell. They enable us to step into someone else’s shoes. To see the world from a different perspective. They make us interested and interesting. Children of all ages benefit hugely from storytelling. They learn to listen, to express themselves and to explore their own imaginations.
Mara’s style of storytelling is incredibly engaging and physical. She takes a story and brings it to life, appealing to every individual in the audience and encouraging full cooperation in the telling of that story, ensuring that everyone has a role in taking ownership of that story.
Working alongside the school, Mara ensures that the stories take into account agreed aspects of the curriculum (both primary and secondary), ensuring fluidity and deeper understanding of the various issues in an enthralling, entertaining, unforgettable manner.
