4 weekends of in-depth exploration of storytelling, voice, movement, connection, improvisation, authenticity and presence: with Roi Gal-or. A storyteller is more than a teller of tales; from the dawn of time, storytellers have been the teachers and guides, the entertainers, advocates of change and healers of humanity. In this part-time course over 4 weekends, we will explore the Art and Craft of the storyteller, working on story structure, voice, gesture, movement, connection and audience awareness, spontaneity and improvisation, authenticity and presence. In a playful, supportive and encouraging environment we will discover the depth and richness of the oral tradition, how to build a repertoire as a storyteller, and how the art of storytelling can transform our own lives and the communities around us. We will be focusing each weekend on a different type of story and learn various techniques and skills needed to tell it. The course will include opportunities to share and perform stories together and alone and receive professional storytelling coaching in front of the whole group. Course Dates: Weekend 1: 9th 11th Oct 2020 Folktales/teaching tales Weekend 2: 6th 8th Nov 2020 Wonder tales Weekend 3: 4th - 6th Dec 2020 Mythology Weekend 4: 8th Jan 10th Jan 2021 Free Projects
