Have you ever taught a fisherman table manners? Stuffed mackerel into your trousers? Slurped fish soup with the devil? Well now’s your chance!
Join storyteller Daniel Serridge [https://danserridge.wordpress.com/] at his dinner table of foolishness and choose the tales he regales from a menu that includes disgusting banquets, salubrious suppers and measly meals in celebration of all things fishy.
This interactive storytelling event will have you banging your knives and forks, making toasts, solving riddles and drawing your dinner.
Disclaimer: There will be no food served at this event and as a consequence you’ll leave starving or never want to eat again.
Dan Serridge is a storyteller, community artist and facilitator who creates vibrant and exciting community projects for all ages and abilities. He tells stories and helps people to tell theirs, supporting everyone to see their experiences as pieces of artwork waiting to be told. Through a combination of the personal and folkloric Dan explores the power of metaphor and meaning that sharing stories can hold.
Dan started his career as a theatre maker and community artist on the west coast of Cumbria where he was first introduced to the power of stories supporting the development of StoryTree, a unique story led performance space designed to inspire local communities. Through this programme Dan gained vast experience in working with schools and communities in rural and urban environments. Dan is now based in Glasgow, following several years developing adult training programmes and managing projects for The Village Storytelling Centre he now has extensive experience of working in all contexts and environments. Dan has worked for a variety of organisations including Theatre by the Lake, Macrobert Arts Centre, Tramway, Simon Community Scotland, Sense Scotland and NHS Scotland.
