“Skald” – A poet and storyteller

Our aim as a group of creatives is to produce and perform untold stories from an international perspective, with a broad range of mediums and genre-bending narratives.

Based in York, we seek influence from its rich history to craft compelling stories and uncover the forgotten tales and characters to bring them to life.

Join us on our journey and gather around to share in humanity’s oldest tradition, to tell stories.
