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.

About the facilitator:

Gauri Raje is an anthropologist and storyteller who works in the UK and India with adults and vulnerable groups. She facilitates multilingual workshops and tells biographical stories, folk tales, ancestral stories and myths. She is especially interested in the concepts of witnessing in storytelling, translation and multilingualism.

Gauri’s most recent projects include directing and performing in ‘East of the Sun, West of the Moon’ a collection of stories for adults from around the world translated and told in 3 different Indian languages, including English, and ‘Badlands’, a storytelling of folk stories from the regions of the Vindhyachal mountains.
