THE STORYTELLER’S TOOLBOX
- OUTLINE -
This popular workshop uses a lively, hands-on approach to equipping students with basic storytelling skills. Students will discover the fun of telling stories. They will discover how to learn a story without resorting to memorisation and learn techniques to tap their imagination to make the story uniquely their own. The workshop will include opportunities for the students to listen to a skilled teller and for them to refine and gain confidence in their own telling skills. This workshop will be individually tailored according to the age and abilities of the students. • Why tell stories? • How to find stories that are suitable for telling. • Techniques for learning story structure. • Techniques for imagining a story through different sensory modes. • Performance tips. • Storytelling with props. • Storytelling practice.
