Event description

Description


If you are interested in storytelling, but don’t know where to start, these workshops facilitated by Sheila Wee, are for you. In two 7-hour modules of hands-on training (over 2 consecutive Saturdays), you will gain a firm grounding in storytelling skills. You will leave with one ready-to-tell story and the tools and confidence to learn and tell more stories.
In a warm and supportive group environment you will learn why storytelling is such a powerful form of communication; how stories can be structured to hook listener’s attention, and discover your own personal storytelling style. Through group, partner and individual exercises, you will be guided through a step-by-step method of learning to tell a story without memorising the words. You will also discover how to add details to make the story uniquely yours, and learn effective story rehearsal and performance techniques.

Outline for Introduction to Storytelling I:
o What is storytelling?
o Why use storytelling?
o The benefits of storytelling
o Performance techniques
o The different applications of storytelling
o Vocal expression and vocal energy
o The story learning process
o Performance practice
o Reflections

This workshop is suitable for beginners.

This course is eligible for SkillsFuture.
