24th to 30th July

Storytelling improves public speaking with the wit and humour of our ancestors, helping us to understand the present. Beyond seemingly impossible situations of suffering lie adventures into success and well-being. Teachers can find stories to improve difficult pupils and classes. Counsellors and life coaches can lift their client's personal stories with those of positive transformation. Stories touch peoples' hearts. They can creep under closed doors, flow into prisons, hide under beds at night to come into the dreamer's sleep, be taken away in restaurants and chip shops, to bring a smile to a furrowed brow. This course will teach you how to retell a story with credibility, depth and power through voice development, movement, memory exercises and more.
