Kate Lawrence

Fantastic Feminist Folktales

Congratulations to Kate Lawrence on the launch of her first one woman show.

On a freezing Friday night in June, to a packed house, Kate had the audience laughing, crying and feeling everything in between.

In the folktales Red Riding Hood and Sleeping Beauty are given a thoughtful, contemporary make-over; the transitions and twists are seamless and the language rich, powerful and at times poetic. The story of Joan of Arc, as researched and told by Kate, is both a revelation and heart-wrenching.

Kate runs the only women's only storytelling night in Melbourne; she also offers workshops and coaching.

To learn of all the storytelling work Kate offers visit her website and sign up for news.

And a big thanks to Kate for all the time she puts into Storytelling Australia Victoria as vice president, website and public officer. We'd be lost without you Kate.
