One Moment In Time

Bronia Evers

Bronia is a storyteller, puppeteer, designer and arts education practitioner. She is co-founder of One Moment In Time with Gerry Spiller. Bronia's deep love of both language and image led her to become a storyteller and puppeteer. Her storytelling moves between the world of the spoken word in all its richness and breadth, and the realm of images, both seen and unseen, in all their mystery and depth. Bronia's stories are told 'from the heart' rather than learned by heart. Each performance is unique and she adapts her material with spontaneity to meet her audience in the moment. Bronia has worked with organisations including The Historic Royal Palaces, Little Angel Theatre, Community Focus, Unicorn Theatre for Children, The Horniman Museum, Manchester Literature Festival, The Discover Centre, Ripstop Productions, Quicksilver Theatre, Oxford Touring Theatre Company, and Little Fish Theatre. She was designer and co-director of the short puppet film, Dog Tail Soup for King Chain Productions. Bronia is a graduate of the International School of Storytelling, where she is now a guest teacher. She also trained in puppet making at The Little Angel Theatre. Bronia holds a B/A Joint Honours degree in Theatre and English from the University of Warwick, and a BTEC foundation in Art and Design from Middlesex University. She is experienced in working with children and young people, has facilitated numerous arts education projects and has a full enhanced DBS check and public liability insurance.
