2: Moth-Style Storytelling Workshop (Instructors: Susan Palmer & Susanne Schmidt, 2/18-3/31)
Do you have a story to tell? The oldest human art form, live storytelling has been bringing people together since the dawn of human existence, but today’s popular NPR program, The Moth Story Hour is reviving our collective passion for excellent storytelling! In a busy world with little time to connect, live storytelling can powerfully foster a deeper sense of community. In this workshop we’ll use weekly prompts to inspire you to recall and retell your own personal stories. Explore what makes a story good, where our stories live in our bodies, and how we can better access and convey emotion and imagery through body language and voice. We will also touch upon the nature and history of storytelling cross culturally and historically. Ultimately get the support you need to craft your raw material into a well-told story which you will ultimately share, in true Moth style, live on stage!
