About

image1.jpg

 Roslyn uses oral storytelling, performance and mixed media to breath life into the folkloric worlds in her mind and invite the characters within to come out and grasp onlookers by the hands, hearts and minds.

Unsurprisingly she works in a library, reading to children and ensuring that their early life is filled with the magic of literacy and story.

Now found living by a creek in the far east of Melbourne in a small house that looks like Dumbledore and Baba Yaga got drunk and fought over the interior design, Roslyn spends her spare time swanning around with a glass of wine on opening nights, or searching for curios to add to her own costumes and props.

Storytelling

Roslyn works with original and traditional tales and poetry. While she is very comfortable in front of a young audience, she also has a passion for enchanting an older audience with tales they thought they had outgrown.

She has performed for a wide range of audiences, from folklore scholars in University classrooms and pannels of judges in speaking competitions to rowdy drunken pirates and a swarm of highly trained martial artists. She’s even bartered stories for goods at markets.

Roslyn enjoys performing in or collaborating on projects as broadly ranged as photography, performance, writing…and anything else you could dream up.
