Laura Sampson

Stories. Sounds. Spoken Words.



I am a storyteller, sound artist and promoter based in London.


theatres, galleries, schools …

Recent performance projects include In the Winter Wood at London’s Polka Theatre and story workshops with Story Storks Heritage (for children); ‘Alternative Tarot’ storytelling with the Crick Crack Club (for adults),  Buxton Fringe, London art gallery White Conduit Projects and the Moon 50 Festival. I’m currently preparing new work for the Bloomsbury Festival, the British Library  and various libraries across the West Midlands. I’m open to story-related opportunities and adventures of all kinds, and I love a chat, so –

Talk to Me


sound art, noh

A practitioner of noh since 2012, I am a trainee member of Theatre Nohgaku and co-producer of the Noh Training Project UK. 2019 projects include new English-language noh Emily (Tara Arts, London).

Sound art commissions/venues include the Hundred Years Gallery, the Groyne Gallery, and Desire Lines (Threads Radio).


narration, radio, shivers

As a vocalist, projects include writing and live v/o at Kings Place (Noh Reimagined, 2018), narration and sounds for literary event series Shivers, alongside my own work. Current and recent projects include spoken word on the Errant Stage, and poetry for They Came Before Us: A History of Women of Colour in the UK (Collage Arts, London)

I have a degree in Literature from UCL, and have since studied voice and performance storytelling forms in Japan, the UK and the USA. I am also an event promoter, tour booker, and an occasional radio co-host on London’s Resonance 104.4 FM
