If you want to download one, I can arrange that. Just send me a mail telling me which story you’d like, and your reason for wanting a download.
Today I often embed the tale within the frame story of The Panchatantra, as The Boys Who Wouldn’t Listen.
And here is an audio recording in German as mp3, part of the CD Geschichten Verbinden (2015), herausgegeben vom Heinrich Pesch Haus, mit Unterstützung von BASF.
This recording was made at a crowded storytelling breakfast in June 2013, part of the Ljungby International Storytelling Festival in Sweden.
The video clips here are all amateur quality, shot in various theatres.
Their intention is just to show the range of my storytelling and give a flavour of a live performance.
