LAAF storyteller in residence Alla Alzougbi beguiled audiences with stories from the Arab world.
Alia is an award-winning, dynamic storyteller with a breadth of tales from around the world. Having grown up around the Middle East (Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Jordan), and coming from a Muslim cultural background, she specialises in stories from the Islamic and Middle Eastern traditions. Her bi-lingual English/Arabic education means that she can extract stories written in Arabic and confidently translate and rework them for an English-speaking audience.
