The Art of Storytelling
Storyteller Roi Gal-Or will introduce the participants to the Oral Tradition: ways of building a repertoire as a storyteller. Folk tales, wonder tales and ancient myths. As a group, we will explore the relationship between stories old and new, their relevance to our life, and which of them are asking to be told today. We will also continue to practice the Skills of the Storyteller: story structure, voice, gesture, movement, audience awareness, spontaneity and improvisation, authenticity and presence.
