Oral Storytelling: Exploring simple techniques and ways to learn, shape and tell stories with Kate Coleman

And So the Story Goes ...
The session is the first step of a journey into the practice of oral storytelling, exploring simple techniques and ways to learn, shape and tell stories. We will delve into why particular tales are important to us and how they shape our lives, thinking about why some stories resonate with us and others do not. Exploring the power of the voice, we will explore how we use voice during storytelling through learning to tell stories from the heart, and with that the importance of silence and active listening.
Whilst the session will require some feedback and participation, there is no expectation to tell a story at the end ... unless, of course, you wish to do so! The workshop is playful, and curiosity based as we start to explore oral storytelling and building confidence around taking stories from the page to the body.
