Join us on the 18th and 25th of September for a free Storytelling Master Class!
The theme of the sessions: 𝐒𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐰𝐞'𝐫𝐞 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦.
During two intensive workshops with Storyteller Simon Hodges, we will welcome traditional stories from our home culture. You will learn how to tell them in a way that feels real and vibrant for you and for your audience.
Traditional stories like Oshun and Oya, Mulla Nasruddin, Coyote, King Arthur, Zeus and Aphrodite often tell us more about where we're from than any single experience. With these stories we can share our pride, humour and frustration with the cultures we grew up in. As storytellers we can discover our own voice along the way.
This workshop is for beginner and continuing storytellers who wish to explore the deep craft of storytelling by honoring the cultures we were born and raised in. By re-telling traditional stories today and in our own way, we offer our contribution to this cultural heritage.
If you want to join the two-session workshop, please come up with an idea for a story you would like to tell. It doesn't have to be ready to perform, we will develop it together!
Session 1: Sunday September 18th from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm
Session 2: Sunday September 25th from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm
