Performing the Devil

A Storyteller's Perspective on Rebranding Beelzebub

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Tim Ralphs (British Award for Storytelling Excellence winner 2012) is a storyteller whose work involves adapting traditional tales for live performance.

In 2013 he launched a new show, Rebranding Beelzebub, a collection of devil folklore adapted to take place in modern, urban environments with a healthy dose of humour.

In this talk, Tim Ralphs will explore some of the great challenges and delights that come from working with this material. He'll tell stories that illustrate the Devil in several different narrative functions, talk about his take on the Devil as a character, the growth and development of his repertoire of Devilish material, and he'll answer whatever questions you're tempted to ask.
