Rusla The Red Maiden, Experience Barnsley

This Vikings storytelling project was commissioned alongside the touringexhibition from YORVIK Viking Centre at Experience Barnsley Museum and Discovery Centre. Human remains, helmets, crowns, jewellery, weapons, and maps were on display along with a Viking encampment so that people could see and experience how the Vikings worked and lived. Two days of storytelling workshops were delivered to depict the Vikings and tell the saga of Rusla, The Red Maiden. The workshops also included drama, dance, choreographed sword fighting, shield/sword making, creative games and role play. The storytelling workshops brought the lives and culture of the Viking to life in an interactive and vibrant way to engage children and adults.
