How To Be A Viking God -
Meet The Viking Skalds
Interactive, drama-history workshop with costumed characters.
In this award-winning workshop, our experienced practitioners will bring the characters of the Viking Storytellers, or “Skalds”, to life for your students.
With full costume and an “in-and-out-of-character” style, our practitioners will explore the ancient Norse tales of heroism, betrayal, battle and laughter. Your students will:
Identify the key Norse Gods by becoming the Gods themselves.
Forge weapons with the dwarves to outsmart Loki.
Discover the different realms and afterlives and what they can teach us about the values and beliefs of the Vikings.
Defeat the Frost Giants with Thor (and find out why he wore a fetching wedding dress).
