What’s been keeping Tim Ralphs busy?

Things have been pretty quiet around here. I’ve finally got around to putting a show description up under the “Booking information” page. You can see that here.

This year I’ve got some crazy storytelling projects on the go. I’ve started running lectures and seminars for Sheffield University in the use of narrative techniques for presenting research. They are aimed at Phd students and early careers researchers, and thus far it’s been really good to share my passion with people looking to share their passions.

I’m also involved in a project to learn every story from The Pentamerone in order. It’s a feat of memory indeed! You can keep up with my progress on Twitter, @TimRalphs and there’ll probably be a show based on The Tale of Tales coming out in 2013.

Lastly, I’m working on a very secret project that has me getting up at six in the morning. It’s too soon to share exactly what that is, but I’m really excited!

Audience comments from Dreamfired Storynights

I’ve just had back the audience feedback from the telling I gave at Dreamfired Storynights. I told From the Odd, which I’m quite proud of as a collection. (One day I’ll tell you the story of how that show came to be written.) Anyway, I don’t have an easy way of thanking the listeners for all their kind words, so I’ll do it here. Thank you, it means a lot!

Here are the kind words in question:

“Really enjoyed Tim Ralphs. Funniest stories yet! Liked the audience involvement”

“Fantastic night, thought Tim was brilliant – loved how the stories interweaved, I was transfixed!”

“Brilliant – so glad we made the effort to get here”

“Excellent – really enjoyed Tim’s surreal, quirky, funny and moving performance”

“Brilliantly weaved and enthralling stories. Very entertaining indeed!”
