Let me tell you a story…

I am an oral, performance storyteller from South Africa and now based in beautiful Innsbruck, Austria.

I tell wise, wild and wonderful tales to grown ups drawing on my repertoire of over 200 folktales, traditional tales, myths, legends, and historical tales.

I also offer workshops, voiceover services, and a rather fantastic story programme for schools.

How can I help?

Storytelling Performances

Choose from a selection of my carefully crafted performances, or let me create something brand new for you. I perform live in spaces of all sizes, as well as online via Zoom.

Workshops & Coaching

I run workshops to help individuals and organisations harness the power of storytelling. I also provide 1-to-1 voice, public speaking, and presentation skills coaching.

Voiceover & Narration

I am native English speaker with a warm, approachable, credible voice and from my professionally equipped studio in Innsbruck, I offer voiceover and narration services.

School Story Troupes

I run annual school story troupe programmes for schools in and around Innsbruck. Students learn confidence, speaking skills, critical thinking skills, the power of narrative and more.

“I never miss Ziyadliwa’s shows in Innsbruck. Her stories are clever and thought-provoking, and from the first word of every show, I’m sucked into the story. She’s full of energy and I’m with her on the whole journey, every single time. Recommended!”
