Svend Engh

Svend-Erik Engh is one of Denmark´s most experienced storytellers. He is multilingual and can easily swift between Danish (his mother tongue), Norwegian (his mother´s tongue), Swedish (he worked there for more than fifteen years) and English, a language he has been working intensely to improve during his stay in Scotland, where he now lives with his life and storytelling partner, Alice Fernbank. 

Ask also if you can hear his version of one of Aesops fables in gibberish Russian. A classic. 

Together with also very tall storyteller Alice he is GIANTS, a storytelling and workshop project, where we tell the positive stories about GIANTS, stories we find in the celtic and nordic mythology and other places where GIANTS are considered as something positive. 

HIs stories are a mixture of Scandinavian Folk Tales, stories from the Nordic Gods and stories he had created while he was walking his dogs. He is presently working on a performance with Viking tales, where the ship is the center of all the stories. 

For ten years he organized Stories under a Tree in Kings Garden, Copenhagen. He is now looking for trees around the UK, where he can tell a story. 

He is an internationally renowned storytellercoach and he manages to find the storyteller in everybody, whether it is a child in a primary school or the director of a large company.
