A storyteller leaves Lancashire to spend 3 years on the Isle of Arran. This is what she found there.

Through storytlling performance, peep boxes and improvised storytelling, the audience are drawn into  a storycircle  where ancient tales of boggarts and mermaids hold hands with contemporary accounts of supernatural landscapes against abackdrop of Scottish island life.

The event is a collaboration between storyteller Jaqueline Harris and sculptor Marjan Wouda.


STORYTELLING

The hunger for narrative is a basic human instinct. Stories help us make sense of the world and give structure and order to our everyday lives.  They tell us what is important, what is not and give us a way to connect people's individual experiences to those of others. They help us identify with universal truths. Stories are a way we put a human face on the world, which is something we have always needed and valued. Some of our most profound decisions are made emotionally, not rationally. Stories tap into emotions better than anything else.
