This course equips you with skills to make authentic & powerful solo performance work. It is an in depth look at traditional stories and contemporary poetry: how they are created, performed & received. With a focus on applied storytelling and critical thinking, you will also acquire skills in facilitation, festival curating and producing.
Focusing on using folklore, myth & poetry to create new work, you will learn the art of solo performance. Led by internationally recognised storyteller, Jan Blake, you will benefit from industry placements with professional practitioners.
Learn a wide range of skills whilst discovering how the resilience that you build as a storyteller & spoken word artist will prepare you for the many diverse spaces in which this work can be applied, as a tool for transformation, beyond the stage.
