Experience Opportunity

Online Course: Storytelling - Autumn 2021

You will spend ten weeks (online) exploring ‘story’ through games, exercises and strategies which will enhance and develop your skills as a solo storyteller. In this time, you will develop a portfolio of stories and learn how to share these with an audience.

Who is this for:

- Actors: who are interested in developing stories for performance

- Writers: who are interested in performing their work to live audiences

- Teachers: Who are looking to develop their experience in facilitating storytelling

- Storytellers: Who are looking to refresh and sharpen up their skills

- Comedians: Who are looking to incorporate stories within their work

- Others: Those who have an interest in writing stories for performance

You will take part in a series of practical workshops which will cover:

​- Stories and their structures

- The biographical (you and your story)

- Explore language and discover how a storyteller conveys meaning in their work

- Working with prop / instrumentation

- Voice (tone, rhythm and articulation)

After each session there will be further practical tasks which will be shared the following week. You will also receive further reading which is designed to highlight key concepts and techniques to enhance and develop you as a storyteller.
