Ben Haggarty is one of the UK’s foremost performance storytellers. For over 40 years he has pioneered the retelling of traditional oral narratives (international folk tales, fairytales, epics and myths) in performance on contemporary stages – finding new contexts and purposes for their telling, researching global performative oral traditions and advocating a reappraisal of the status of orality. He is Visiting Research Fellow in the Creative Arts at Merton College.
