Svend Engh

Book Svend Engh

Svend-Erik Engh is one of Denmark’s most experienced storytellers. He is multilingual and can easily shift between Danish (his mother tongue), Norwegian (his mother’s tongue), Swedish (worked there for over fifteen years) and English, a language he has been working intensely to improve during his stay in Scotland, where he now lives with his life and storytelling partner, Alice Fernbank.

Together with Alice he is GIANTS, a storytelling and workshop project exploring positive stories about giants, mostly found in celtic and nordic mythology.

His stories are a mixture of Scandinavian Folk Tales, stories from the Nordic Gods and tales created while he walking his dogs. He is presently working on a performance with Viking tales, where the ship is the center of all the stories. Ask also if you can hear his version of one of Aesops fables in gibberish Russian. A classic.

For ten years he organized Stories under a Tree in Kings Garden, Copenhagen and is now looking for trees around the UK where he can tell a story.

He is an internationally renowned storytelling coach and manages to find the storyteller in everybody, whether it is a child in a primary school or the director of a large company.
