Naomi has often been invited to share her love of storymaking and her skills as an engaging teller of tales. Using her skills as a performer both for theare and television, she is able to capture the imaginations of her audiences and leave them spellbound! Working within school and community settings, festivals and cultural events, she is a favourite of many educational leaders, event organisers and families.
She has performed in various roles, sharing the true stories of courageous women from Black History who have made a difference. These stories are always accompanied by interactive drama-based workshops where children are encouraged to think of the history, people and changes depicted by Naomi’s performance.
Naomi has staged tales from all over the globe, even from outer space, and keeps them safely stored in her various ‘bags and boxes of goodies’, ready to mix into a medley of takeaway stories. Retelling fables both ancient and new, she encourages participation from her audiences - an opportunity for all to express ideas and write new stories for their school, community and the world!
"As a performer and storyteller Naomi has the ability to make her audience, small or large, from a theatre with 120 children to a small intimate gathering in a library feel important, engaged and special. Her warmth, understanding and skill in delivering a performance comes from a complete understanding of how theare needs to embrace and invite its audience in."
