Su Squire is a storyteller, writer, performer and facilitator who creates work that seeks to explore the light and shade of what it is to be human.
For several years Su worked as a script writer and director for the community theatre programme at Bridgwater Arts Centre delivering birth in-house and outreach projects. During this time she also developed her own work as a solo theatre artist touring work throughout the South West and at the Edinburgh Fringe. During this time she also performed and directed with children’s theatre company Blue Moon and street theatre company Scratch Productions.
As a storyteller Su’s work is diverse, encompassing a number of alter egos. As Tilly the Talespinner she tells stories for children and families at festivals and events them dark, as Suki SilverTongue she serves up subversive spins on classic tales at festivals, cabaret nights, live literature events and even weddings and hen parties.
Su has been creating work on death, dying and grief for over ten years and is a facilitator at the Norwich Death Cafe.
