A wise man once said all stories have legs which is certainly true of the tales you will hear from Storyteller Ian Douglas. Gathered from tellers, festivals, events and chance meetings from lands near and far, Traveling Tales will be a magical performance that is sure to stir up your inner wanderlust.
Ian Douglas works extensively across the British Isles. With over 20 years of experience delivering storytelling, performance and theatre activities for schools, arts organisations, communities and festivals across Britain, he has developed a practise approach which mixes sensitivity, Commedic energy and wit leading to a style all of his own.
The origins of Ian's work are steeped in the traditions of street theatre which has helped him develop his unique storytelling style. His work has been described as 'truly inspirational' and draws upon a rich vein of British folk tales and world myths.
During his career, Ian has had the privilege to sit at the knee of renowned storytellers such as Duncan Williamson and was apprenticed to the Grasmere-based storyteller Taffy Thomas.
