“Danyah’s performance is a tour de force. The show is moving and memorable, a glorious example of the magic of storytelling. I didn’t like it, I loved it!”
“My wife, two daughters and I went to I Believe in Unicorns at the Vaudeville last Friday Whilst we did not know much about the story itself before going into the theatre… we were blown away not just by the story but by your performance. At first we were a bit scared our children wouldn’t be able to focus for an hour as we realised you would be alone on stage. However, the whole experience, the involvement of the audience, the story, the visuals but especially the way you told it and your flawless performance was marvelous. We do not often go to the theatre but to our family it was a breath of fresh air and a memorable experience.”
“Danyah can play a wide range in her style as a teller. She is dramatic, energetic, creative and original. I have heard her telling stories which made me laugh and cry , sometimes both at once. She is present, flexible and confident in a true, authentic way.”
Roi Gal-Or – Course Leader – School of Storytelling
“Our children are still talking about the stories Danyah gave to us. Working with her gave us the confidence to take risks in our curriculum. Linking story and the environment to develop creativity in our classrooms and outside led to truly astounding improvements in our children’s writing.”
