Event Description

a two day course in bringing stories to life.
May 14th and 21st from 10:30-12 noon at The Dancing Tree Story Workshop, Needham, MA



Saturday, May 14th and Saturday, May 21st.

Get the stiffness out of your telling and the playfulness back in with ‘embodied storytelling’ a delightful body-based approach. When you embody a story, your physicality is as full a partner as your imagination and your voice. Weave into your narrative arc the world of the story and the body-based experiences of your characters and find surprising moments, new insights and organic rhythms enriching your work. Embodiment opens the door to storytelling’s ancient, transformational magic. Bring a short and simple folkloric tale. An Aesop fable would be perfect!

This workshop is for storytellers, theatre artists, public speakers, clergy, teachers, interpreters, parents and all those who have a chance to tell a tale in their life or work. Open to all levels of experience.


$55 (Earlybird $45) RSVP through Eventbrite!

Note: Signing up for one workshop on the eventbrite page signs you up for the whole series!
