About the Story Sessions

Storytelling, storymaking and dramatization. Participants learn the basic elements and techniques involved in telling and making stories: who-what-when-why-how, voice, gesture.
A variety of themes and topics are available for the adult storytelling playshops, such as courage, wisdom, and family history.
The stories can evolve from telling, to writing, or dramatizating with props and costumes.
