Storytelling From The Inside Out
How can we tell a story as if it were told for the first time?
In this workshop we aim to create our storytelling performance from the inside out. From the inside where our constantly changing emotional self is ‘hidden’, where our own secret treasure chest resides. Instead of crafting a story as a constant ‘frozen’ form which we design from the outside. Would you like to join us on that journey?
As humans our emotional state constantly changes, our storytelling can be the same. the story could be different each time we connect with it. It could be like a volcano erupting from the depth of our personality, from the source of our unsolved questions, from our sorrow's happiness and love, constantly coming to life from the part of us which is always alive.
Storyteller/Actor Raphael Rodan and Focusing trainer Esther Kornalijnslijper combine their view and experience with inner work. Raphael will work with various techniques inspired by Meisner's method of acting which will, encourage you to reconnect to your instincts, and open your inner treasure box so your storytelling can come to life.
Esther will bring in the gentle technique of Focusing – allowing oneself to feel whatever there is inside and thus dipping into the implicit treasures of our body wisdom.
Each participant is requiared to bring a short story (maximum 7 minutes) that (s)he has told before.
This course is designed for performing storytellers who wish to enrich their work in a new way.
