Stories and Tales: The Use of Narrative as a Learning Tool

Storytelling, is a daily part of our lives. It is a means of communication which connects us with our humanity. But why is the art of storytelling important? Why are we still enchanted by its magical power?

In this course, participants will have the chance to explore the power of telling stories in our modern society. They will also explore and develop their understanding of the importance of the use of the whole self while telling a story. The workshop is based on a practical process. It involves a basic warm-up of the body and mind, group work, storytelling technique development, exploration of the storytellers body / facial expressions / voice and how to use all these aspects to deliver a story.
