Event description

Description

Join international storyteller, Cassandra Wye for a 3-hour workshop which will use movement as the catalyst for bringing a story alive.

In this workshop, you will be introduced to the Stories in Motion approach to creating a unique version of a story through movement, drama and sound improvisation, solo, partner and group work

Participants will explore:

  • How to warm up effectively to harness the body’s potential to tell a story visually AND verbally

  • How to use movement as a stimulus to devise a unique version of a traditional tale

  • How to choreograph a performance from improvisation to performance
