Tour Guide Perspective: Kathryn Fray – Story Teller
Kathryn Fray – Story Teller
ON THE STREETS WHERE IT HAPPENED
I can tell you a story about anything. Go on, ask me. Some people are good with numbers, some at sport, but I can make-believe. I never imagined that I would end up doing this though. Theatre and storytelling for me was always on the stage. A full and complete script that you had to adhere to, costumes, props, lighting. The actors moved around a static set, the audience sat in the auditorium. And that’s all great, but audience and actor are a bit removed from each other.
History and the ‘true experience’ has always been a passion of mine. I can pour over paintings and pictures of days gone by and spend ages wondering about the lives of the anonymous faces. My job as an actor is to make people I don’t know come to life: create their world in such a way that you believe it too.
