SO MANY FESTIVALS! So many joyous experiences and long-lasting friendships made. I especially love performing in Austria at the International Storytelling Festival. The venues for this festival are spread across the country. Over the years I have told stories in opera houses, hill-top castles, Baroque churches, simple country churches, a glass factory,  Austria’s highest security prison (not for the inmates!) a vineyard, the lingerie department of a 1920s department store, a truly extraordinary Tesla laboratory, a village hall with a stork nesting on a pole right outside, an art gallery, a floating restaurant, a torture museum and one of the most historic squares in Vienna.

This video shows the calibre of performers who appear at this festival. It is a complete honour to appear alongside them. I appear at 5.34.
