GIANTS with Alice and Svend

GIANTS is a live storytelling performance about being big in a world of small people.


GIANTS is a workshop where the participants explore what it is to be big.


GIANTS is a language school project, where English language learners explore stories from the Celtic and Nordic myth tradition.


Two very tall storytellers Alice Fernbank and

Svend-Erik Engh bring you stories of giants and giantesses from Celtic and Nordic Mythology. Infused with their own personal experience of being big people in an average sized world, Alice and Svend weave together a mythological history of the giants who once roamed this earth.


The project comprises of a performance and a workshop for children, and a separate performance and workshop for adults.
