The William Morris Society invited me to Kelmscott House in Hammersmith, London to tell traditional Icelandic Sagas and celebrate the life of the prolific multimedia artist, author and social activist.
William Morris loved Iceland and Icelandic sagas. He visited the country twice in the 1870s and wrote his own version of an Icelandic epic, Sigurd the Volsung.
I adapted these traditional Icelandic folktales of dragons, bears, kings and warriors for a family audience, complete with multisensory elements. The youngest participant was 7 months but the best part was the amount of solo adults who joined in! Storytelling is for life, not just for childhood bedtimes.
