About the event
Explore the transformative and healing power of a story for both teller and listener. We will learn to present stories in different forms, short story recital, poetry, spoken word and song. Experience the power of movement and celebrate the craft of storytelling in 4 exciting workshops:
Begin your journey to storytelling, bring an item which has inspired you to tell. Workshop will begin with physical games, breath work and then relaxation exercises, to create a safe space. We will then draw out stories from our well, choosing a form to deliver them.
Physical exercises, voice work, breath and relaxation. We will delve into the craft of performance beginning by listening to a master storyteller. Experiment with movement and voice, putting your story in the frame of a theatrical piece.
3. Push Boundaries.
Exercises and relaxation. We will explore our boundaries. What are the obstacles we face? How can we overcome them as storytellers , to give voice to our inner most thoughts and prompt healing for teller and listener. Let’s go deeper into our stories, adding new dimensions and embellishing them with more truth.
We will begin with exercises and breath work. We will work on group affirmations, to begin the process of safely inviting an audience in. Trusting listeners will enable us to “flow outwards.” How will this benefit us? By pausing at our well, listeners can be refreshed by what is drawn out, even if the stories are challenging.
Performance: Saturday 11th November
