Storytelling Workshop

Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th March 2020 10am to 4pm

at Life Care Centre, 2 Cheyne St, Stockbridge, Edinburgh EH4 1JB

with Svend-Erik Engh and Alice Fernbank

A weekend storytelling workshop on embodying dialogue.


  • Vocal variety, and character voice
  • Archetypes and opposites: finding physical freedom and precision
  • Being seen, being grounded, being here now

Alice and Svend-Erik combine their knowledge of physical theatre and storytelling skills to bring you a unique weekend immersion into the artistry of storytelling.

Alice uses archetypes and physical gesture to help storytellers access a character’s true essence, both physically and vocally.

Svend-Erik, inspired by the work of Dario Fo, will explore how every story is built on opposites. He will work on how to change between characters within seconds and involve the audience in every step of the story.

For intermediate storytellers or people using storytelling in their work, teachers, priests, presenters etc.

Max. 12 participants.

Price £80




“Alice’s empathy, perception and imaginative approach really helped me to dive ever deeper into the story I was working with. Challenging me to explore the story from the edges of my comfort zone, she nevertheless always took good care of me, encouraging me to trust my own instincts and style.Hope I can work with her again.” Catriona Blanke, Singer Songwriter and Storyteller.

Svend-Erik is an excellent teacher, who can spot and communicate exactly where your strengths and weaknesses lie, and give accurate and practical suggestions for improvement. He gives the moment his full attention, giving encouragement, building confidence, and demanding more at all times.
Linda Pertulla, Storyteller and Tourguide
