Body Telling


What if never asked to be rescued by an armoured knight, and are perfectly happy where we are?

What kind of straw is today’s world asking us to spin into gold – and WHY SHOULD WE?

How come the prince never gets to sleep for 100 years?

How can you get the girl (or boy) when killing giants and slaughtering dragons is neither attractive nor realistic?

Bodytelling workshops use fairy tales to facilitate discussion of relationships, gender and body image. Responsive to SRE teaching requirements, I offer these classes for Key Stage Three — Five students to facilitate a safe and sensitive space in which young people navigate their relationships to social and cultural expectations. Traditional stories are told to inspire the telling of the groups’ own changing stories; enhancing their ability to respect themselves and others by the practice of speaking and listening to how, where and why we relate.
