In a nutshell
A short intermediate course, led by Ben Haggarty, and aimed at those who already have some experience of telling traditional tales.
This 2 day practical workshop looks at the shaping and construction of stories using Indo-European wonder tales (fairytales) as a starting point. In particular it will explore how spoken, improvised language functions within a narrative, and will introduce key compositional tools design to bring out the emotional life of a story.
What to Expect
This 2 day workshop is packed with exercises, talk, discussion, and telling stories...
