Before we can begin to help others develop their stories, we must first spend time thinking, exploring and sharing our own stories. What is your story?
Caterpillar and Chrysalis is a two-part storytelling workshop by Rosemarie Somaiah that explores experiential storytelling strategies, followed by the sharing of personal stories.
Caterpillar: Workshop. Caterpillars need to eat and storytellers need to tickle their taste-buds with stories of various kinds. Do you prefer to stay with tradition or create your own?
Chrysalis: Workshop + Sharing. Keep safe while you build the courage and strength to spread your wings. Then, embrace and share the beauty of your personal story.
Suitable for Applied Theatre Practitioners, School Teachers, Community Artists (with or without storytelling background).
This programme is eligible for Tina Sergeant Professional Development Initiative (TSPDI) funding. A link to the application will be sent in the acknowledgment email.
