Órla Mc Govern: Chasing the Tale
DEAR VISITORS! IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE NEW CONDITIONS FOR VISITING CULTURAL EVENTS, VTR CONDITIONS APPLY TO VISIT THE THEATER
The art forms of storytelling and improvisation have long danced together. We improvise all the time as storytellers and we use storytelling skills and structures in many impro formats. In this workshop we will explore the place where storytelling and improvisational theatre meet. We will look into structures like story theatre, story play, personal and character monologues and all the worlds that open in between. Storytelling and improvisation are wonderful dance partners. Let’s see where the dance takes us.
The workshop is limited to 10 participants.
The registration fee for one workshop is 45 €, for two 85 €
