Workshop: Story Telling

What is the relationship between your life now and the stories and myths from the oral tradition of the past?

How can stories serve the communities and environments in which we live and work?

What is the role of the storyteller and the power of the spoken word when the warmth of human encounter is often replaced by digital communication?

In this block course we will deal with these questions as well as explore The craft of the Storyteller. Using biographical and traditional stories, you will learn how to use your voice, gesture, movement and audience awareness to bring your stories to life.
