Storytelling for Adults – The GuestHouse Storytellers welcomes Nell Phoenix with ‘Tricksterland’

There is a place where power crackles through all things: broken bodies can become whole, thoughts can be heard, old bones speak and even rocks want revenge.

Here we stumble through shape-shifting worlds on a journey to the edge of the earth.
Be prepared to encounter all things earthy, brutal and bold. Age 12+
 ‘a mercurial and captivating performer. ‘ Exeunt Magazine
