About the workshop
Through a series of games and exercises we will explore some
of the fundamental techniques for breathing life into a story.
Using voice, text and gesture you will work with a short
folktale; seeing it taking shape and exploring ways to
captivate your listeners. Whilst the workshop material is based
on traditional folk stories, the skills you will learn can be
applied to other forms of storytelling; such as historical
stories, autobiographical material and contemporary
fiction. All storytelling material provided. Just turn up.
“A good story well told can create a bridge between the
storyteller and the listeners, so that the story is co-created
between the two rather than simply told and received.”
