A recording of Alastair's live online performance during the Covid-19 crisis for the World Storytelling Cafe 

Alastair has performance experience in a wide range of settings, from school to college, museum to historic property, gallery to community setting, and hospital to prison. He brings communication skills, honed as a performance storyteller and classroom teacher, together with a background in physical theatre to create performances that are characterised by an interactive and conversational style through which a continuing back-and-forth with his audience breaks down expectations around the roles of teller and listener.   


Alastair's story repertoire has been broken down into three categories. In the first two (traditional and literary tales) age-phase guidance has been provided using terminology from the English education system:


Early Years (E.Y.) - up to the age of 5

Key Stage 1 (KS1) - between the ages of 5 and 7

Year 2 - between the ages of 6 and 7

Key Stage 2 (KS2) - between the ages of 7 and 11

Lower Key Stage 2 (LKS2) - between the ages of 7 and 9

Upper Stage 2 (LKS2) - between the ages of 9 and 11

Key Stage 3 (KS3) - between the ages of 11 and 14

Key Stage 4 (KS3) - between the ages of 14 and 16

Key Stage 5 (KS5) - over the age of 16


Any of these performances can be booked by community groups, storytelling clubs or festivals, but the third category of 'Club and Festival sets' are speciifally aimed beyond educational settings.
