Georgiana used just a few props a beer bottle, a samurai sword, a coconut. Her body was her instrument; her expressions, voice, gesture and contact with the audience. It’s rare as an adult to experience this, perhaps that’s why we became dreamy and blissful. Georgiana’s talent was spellbinding, and at the same time the theme appeared clearly as we recognized our own society’s over-consumption and climate change.
People were transfixed, chuckling, quietly fascinated. Georgiana told with her whole self. She was able to express everything, from loving attraction of an Inuit woman, to religious fervor of the strictest kind, despair and hunger, or the Japanese warlords optimism for his society. When you hear Georgiana it’s almost like you want to run out and climb in a tree! The stories are humorous, warm and serious at the same time. She brings a joy of telling which is infectious, and she moves so lightly and expresses such clear pictures that she awakens something childlike and playful in the listeners. To use this storytelling like this is pure gold when one has a message to deliver. Sunniva Kambestad, Naturvernforbundet
You are not just clever you are magic. Like a goddess on stage who made an amazing world for us, as we sat and listened with our ears, eyes and hearts. Many, many thanks! Veronica Salinas,Norwegian storytelling festival.

Thank you very much for your CD. I have listened alone and with my husband. The stories have a seriousness and your voice is transmitting your devotion in a way that makes a deep impression. I was thinking that in a way you are establishing your own church and that in this church I would like to go often.So thank you.Vibeke Brdahl, Ph.D., Dr.Phil., senior researcher on Chinese storytelling

Thank you on behalf of all at the Soil Association for bringing your story telling skills into the organic movement, both at workshop and at the conference dinner. I had fantastic feedback from those that attended the workshop.I also thought that the storytelling during the dinner worked really well and think that it should become a permanent feature of future Soil Association gatherings. As you have rightly said we are all story tellers whether we realise it or not and the important thing is to engage with this and develop our potential.Patrick Holden, CBE,Soil Association, Bristol
