Zara Waldebäck: Animistic Storytelling #42

From the busyness of UK screen writer’s rooms to the stillness of the Swedish forests. From mastering the story to serving the story. From performance to ceremony. From ego-centred to eco-centred.

Zara Waldebäck’s life, wisdom and thoughts on storytelling, resonance, relationship and attention are some of the many wonderful ingredients of this conversation. It developed and grew like a mycelial network of association and wonder, sprouting fascinating mushrooms to ponder, while pairing and playfully opposing the invisible and visible worlds in a dance of words.
