Maria Credali

Professional storyteller Maria Credali entertains both crowds and intimate gatherings with traditional and historical tales from all over the world. She breathes life into characters and draws the listener into a vivid world of story. Maria’s warm and engaging, humorous style is well suited to work in a wide variety of venues – she has told stories on boats and buses, at magnificent monuments and humble huts, by banquets and bonfires. She always leaves listeners with warm hearts and smiles on their faces. Bringing history to life, and engaging the imagination of her listeners, Maria finds ways to unlock the past and to provide entertaining and memorable performances and workshops. She also works with communities to gather, interpret and preserve local heritage for future generations. Recent work includes commissions for The Royal Shakespeare Company, Marrakech International Storytelling Festival and Arts Council England.
