Music, Storytelling


During a workshop we discuss the elements of drama in storytelling, such as character, structure, projection, expression, and dialect. Students create a simple collaborative work through which they expand their skills in improvisation, pantomime and role playing. We discuss the concept that traditional and personal stories reflect on specific cultures, periods, and styles. We consider the roles of storytelling in community-building and the idea that all of us, everywhere, have folk life.
