The Magical Stories of Old Britain is a long form spoken-word piece made to encourage engagement in British folk heritage and highlight the fragile and ever-changing nature of oral storytelling. It explores the idea of myths, multiple truths and perspectives, meaning that a story can’t be told in one particular way. Oral storytelling works in a beautiful way that reading cannot, by relying on our memory and challenging our occularcentralism of “I have to see it to believe it”.
