Once we are familiar with oral storytelling and the transmission of inner imagery, it is time to dive deeper into the performative strength of the storyteller. We look in detail at which techniques support us in enriching the stories we tell.

Once we have grasped the principles of oral storytelling and the transmission of inner imagery to an audience – what is the next step? How can we effectively shape a story and feel comfortable with use of gestures, space, audience interaction and language improvisation? Which performance rules apply to the oral storyteller in comparison to the art of reciting?

In this add-on course we will dive deeper into the world of orality and look at which techniques can support us in enriching our stories with regards to the use of body and poetic language. We will also look at story material and why we choose to tell the stories we tell. The workshop contains exercises for working with autobiographical and traditional tales as well as with poetry.
