Svend-Erik is in the great European tradition of Dario Fo’s artistry. He begins in a natural low key mode till he establishes a genial rapport with his listeners and then he uses his gifts of expression to usher us into the story experience.
Moving face and increasingly form, Svend-Erik draws us through the tale with a full gamut of emotions, liberal doses of humour, and an undergirding of humane understanding.
This approach to storytelling is firmly rooted in Svend-Erik Engh's Scandinavian culture, in particular its educational traditions, as inspired by N. F. S. Grundtvig, the great Danish philosopher of poetry and myth.
