All things begin and end as stories
performance / workshops / research
I'm an interdisciplinary storyteller. Through performing, teaching and research, I hold spaces for people to experience how traditional stories meet and merge with the world we know, and to connect there.
I work with story in a trauma-informed way, facilitating confidence building, public speaking, and communications support within and between individuals and organisations. I work with clients and partners in the arts, education, community, and corporate sectors.

'For a spellbinding hour, Corinne took us deep into the realm of story, rekindling our imaginations, stretching open our ears and touching our hearts. The tales she told were wild and tender, fierce and outlandish, and soulful without ever being sentimental. And they did what all good stories do -- return you to the world again, with all its big and strange marvels.'

I’ve trained in storytelling, dramaturgy, voice work, and stand-up comedy performance with The International School of Storytelling, FEST, Jo Blake, Ben Haggarty, Bryony Greenhill, Emily LeQuesne and Angie Belcher.
I hold a first-class BA from Falmouth University, a CELTA teaching qualification from The University of Cambridge, and an MA with distinction from The University of Bristol in Comparative Literatures and Cultures.
My UK and international partnerships include UK Trauma Council, Theatre Bristol, Arts Council England, Story Jam, REMA / Early Music in Europe, Unique Voice, CullBerg, The Bristol Education Partnership, and The Crick Crack Club.
I am a visiting lecturer in Comparative Oralities and performance storytelling for The University of Gloucestershire, Falmouth University and The University of Bristol.
