This 2-day intensive workshop takes the participants through the art of story-telling, rather than of story-writing. An old art form, it is distinct from the writing of a story or theatre. The two days will focus on different elements of the art of storytelling including visualisation work, the place of sound in story, improvisational elements and the element of listening within a storytelling.

By the end of the workshop, you will have a story prepared to tell in a gathering.

This workshop is open to all over the age of 16. No previous experience in literature, theatre or public speaking is necessary. The workshop is multilingual, and fluency in English is NOT a prerequisite for the workshop.
