Storytelling Skills: Movement & Body
Workshop with Shona Cowie & Inés Álvarez Villa
(Sat 15 Apr: 10.30am-4pm)
Movement is a fundamental tool in live storytelling, enriching performances and providing a more engaging experience for audiences. This workshop offers a chance to find a deeper connection to your body, increase precision and clarity in your body language and explore your own unique style of expression through movement.
Led by storytellers Shona Cowie and Inés Álvarez Villa, both of whom have extensive experience in combining storytelling and movement through training in Mime and Clowning (L’Ecole Jacques Lecoq) and in Ballet practices respectively.
Combining brief theoretical discussions with practical exercises, participants will have the opportunity to explore and develop movement techniques and receive feedback. The workshop will take place in a safe, supportive, and playful environment and is open to all levels of storytelling experience.
Our participatory sessions are designed to help you improve your skills and share your experiences with fellow storytelling enthusiasts. This carefully curated workshop programme offers you the chance to work with highly-skilled and experienced artists, giving you guidance on improving your practice and discovering your own talent.
