Laura Sampson

Stories. Sounds. Spoken Words.



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


theatres, galleries, schools …

Recent projects include Legend of the Burning Bell at the British Library, Animal Lullabies with Secret City Arts, Lunar Dreams at the Bloomsbury Festival, and with Polka Theatre, Story Storks Heritage, and the Crick Crack Club. I’m currently preparing new work for Brighton Fringe, and various London literary festivals. 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 performing member of Theatre Nohgaku and co-producer of the Noh Training Project UK. Current projects include new noh Between the Stones (Southbank Centre, London & tour).

Sound art commissions/venues include the Hundred Years Gallery, the Groyne Gallery Steep, Arch 1, and Desire Lines (Threads Radio).


narration, radio, shivers

As a vocalist, projects include writing and live v/o at Kings Place (Noh Reimagined), narration and sounds for literary event series Shivers, alongside my own work. Current and recent projects include spoken word with Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir, 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
