How to Tell a Kick Butt 5 minute story.
Come and enjoy a 1.5 hour workshop on finding a story from your life experience with coaching and pointers on performance. Storytelling is a whole performance art unto itself.
Each workshop is one time/ free standing event and taught by professional teaching artists. The workshops may be different in flavor and perhaps worth taking twice BUT are meant to be a jump start, all-in-one experience. The cost is $20 for each session/workshop and, if you stay for open mic (recommended) you must purchase something ($5 minimum) at the venue.
In this workshop you will begin to learn how storytelling differs from theater, stand up and twisting balloon animals and how to mine your life experience to craft a story. Followed by an open mic opportunity to tell your story to an audience.
Limited to 16 and minimum of 6 to run. Taught by professional massmouth tellers who will feature with a ten minute story at the open mic 2nd Mondays from MAY 10th - SEPT 13th
Coordinated by Norah Dooley and Andrea Lovett; educators, professional storytellers, performance coaches, and story lovers. www.norahdooley.com and
