Activities at Atsitsa Bay, Greece

Storyteller-in-Residence with Dawn Ellis

Sun 9 - Sat 22 Aug 2020

As Storyteller-in-Residence, Dawn will be preparing and working on stories and performing them, as well as gathering snippets and shreds of story from Atsitsa itself. She will weave these together and conjure new concoctions throughout the session.

We have used Storytelling to talk about the important things since we lived in caves and stories are fundamental to the way we understand our lives. You can change a lot by re-telling your own stories - and ancient myths and fairy tales can put down deep roots into our psyches and enrich our lives.“ 

As an actor and performance storyteller, writer and broadcaster Dawn has told stories all her life – she has a mission to put storytelling skills into the hands of people who can make a difference. She is a compelling storyteller herself and Dawn inhabits her characters, as she performs traditional Myths and Fairy tales in organisations of all shapes and sizes.

Dawn Ellis is a mesmerising and accomplished story teller who can easily mix up and mash up ancient myth and cockney rhyming slang, old stories with rich themes that make them relevant to today’s audiences…. Few understand the deep healing in stories and the reasons why we sapiens like to listen. Dawn is a born story teller, with telling in her DNA." (Monique Roffey)

Dawn will be Storyteller-in-Residence from Sunday 9 to Saturday 22 August (AT6). 


About Dawn Ellis

As an actor and performance storyteller, writer and broadcaster Dawn has told stories all her life – she was drawn to the theatre at the tender but determined age of 10. During her acting career, ranging from the West End to Fringe to Television, she played roles from classical to comedy, as well as exploring the bounds of physical theatre. 

Dawn sees stories as the spice in our daily life and the bedrock of culture, gold dust in the hands of anyone who can use them well. As a facilitator she has a mission to put storytelling skills into the hands of people who can make a difference. She is a compelling storyteller and likes to get under the skin of stories, finding deeper meanings in the familiar archetypes. Dawn inhabits her characters, as she performs traditional Myths and Fairy tales in organisations of all shapes and sizes.  

As London’s ‘After Dinner Storyteller’ she spends the winters infiltrating people’s homes, inviting them to curl up in front of the fire, and sip hot toddies, while she treated them to traditional folk, ghost and seasonal fairy stories. She is inspired by nature and the elements, and likes to spend her summers spinning tales with friends under a star-strewn Mediterranean sky.

Dawn is a warm and intuitive facilitator; she finds innovative ways to enable people to harness their creativity and energy.  Her courses explore stories and storytelling, while building confidence, and investigating what it takes for us to be the Author of our own stories and lives. 

She co-founded Instant Teamwork with Tom Morley and she is also recognised as a gifted facilitator of Attitudinal Intelligence work.
