Emily Hennessey came to storytelling while studying Drama & Theatre Studies at the University of Kent where she met storyteller Dr Vayu Naidu. Emily completed a storytelling apprenticeship with Vayu and later trained with Ben Haggarty. Emily has also had the privilege of training with Indian Pandvani performer, Ritu Verna. Playful, imaginative and daring to take risks, Emily tells myths, legends, epics, folktales, fairytales and fables from around the world. With a Swedish background, Emily has a particular passion for Norse mythology. Work and research trips in rural India, from Ladakh to Tamil Nadu, have also infused a great love of Hindu myth and epic. Recent performances include a tour of India with the British Council, the Royal Opera House, the Viking Ship Museum in Denmark and Beyond the Beyond Storytelling Festival. Emily is a key member of the Pandvani108 ensemble with whom she has toured music festivals across the UK and performed at venues such as Soho Theatre, Richmix and the Ancient Technology Centre.
