Louse and the Flea

Another comic tale from The Panchatantra

A tale first written down around 2500 years ago, yet just as popular today. As you can probably guess, Green Line is the name of a English textbook widely used in many German schools.

The recording was made in February 2013 at the Gostner Theater in Nuremberg.


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.
