Let me tell you a story

I am an oral, performance storyteller who travels the world creating unforgettable storytelling experiences for adult and youth audiences.

With over 200 stories in her repertoire, she crafts show-length performances and tells individual tales that entertain, inspire, delight, and provoke thought. She draws on traditional tales, myths, legends, timeless epics, “geostories”, science, history, and everyday life to craft unforgettable performances that are wise, witty, and filled with wonder.

Touring shows

If you have an event coming up and you want to offer an unusual and engaging storytelling performance that has been proven time and again, you can choose from one of my professional set shows. I currently offer a number of shows suitable for venues of all sorts, all of which are told in English. Each lasts +- 110 minutes, including an interval.

Environmental & climate storytelling

If we want to create a world where we and future generations can thrive, we need a combination of new and traditional stories. I tell stories that “tell it like it is” and that offer a vision for a hopeful, sustainable future.

Custom shows

Need something special for your venue and event? I create custom storytelling showsfor adult and family audiences for venues large and small.

I never miss Ziyadliwa’s shows in Innsbruck. Her stories are clever and thought-provoking, and from the first word of every show, I’m sucked into the story. She’s full of energy and I’m with her on the whole journey, every single time. Recommended!
