KATY CAWKWELL: Tristan & Iseult
In the theatre
Katy Cawkwell has been storytelling for 20 years across Britain and beyond. She heard this story as a teenager in the first agonies of being in love – and it has never left her! Tristan & Iseult is one of the great love stories, spanning the lands and seas of Cornwall, Ireland and Brittany. Katy picks a clear, brilliant path through this many-layered legend, touching her listeners with the excitement, beauty and tragedy of a timeless tale.
“Katy’s storytelling style is fluent, eloquent, flowing and altogether faultless… she captivates the audience with beautiful, well voiced characters and understated, but incredibly effective, mannerisms… joyous, visceral and visual.” Adrian Johnson, Arts Council England, reviewing a performance at the Barbican
