Improv and Storytelling
Nov 4 / 2017 10:00-14:30
A fun and physical approach to storytelling where you will discover how to turn short stories into performances. The workshop aims to help you learn how to adapt text for the stage in order to embody the world of the story and figure out your own voice.
We will use three contemporary short stories. Participants should have read the texts beforehand. Some acting experience is required. Spaces are limited, please book in advance. Do you have questions? Please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Places can be secured by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or booking online above.
