Personal stories can be very strong because you have lived through the experience and recount that experience from the heart. Yet, how can you transform mere biographical/anecdotal accounts and cringing naval-gazing material into thought-provoking and touching tales that will fascinate your chosen listeners? In My Life: Shaped & Retold, you will gain practical tips on how to create tellable tales out of significant events from your life.

Upcoming StoryPlay Workshop



Facilitated by: David Bok

Date: Tuesday 16 October 2014

Time: 7pm to 9.45pm

Venue: To be confirmed

It’s difficult to tell a story from your life because it can make you very vulnerable. But look at it this way – each of us have a wealth of personal experiences  that are good, bad and ugly. These have the potential to become fascinating stories that can inspire, instruct and entertain. How we mine and use these stories is the subject of this workshop.

Preparation for Participants: Bring along two short personal stories of less than 7 minutes each.

An Introduction to Storytelling Workshop 2014

A workshop conducted by Sheila Wee of Storywise

If you are interested in storytelling, but don’t know where to start, this workshop; facilitated by Sheila Wee, is for you.  It will  give  you  a firm grounding in storytelling skills and you  will  leave with one ready to tell story and the tools to learn and tell more stories.

In a warm and supportive group environment you will learn why storytelling is such a powerful form of communication; how stories can be structured  to  hook listeners attention and discover your own personal storytelling  style. Through  group, partner and individual exercises,  you will be guided  through  a  step-by-step method  of learning to tell a story without memorising the words. You will also discover how to add details to make the story uniquely yours, and learn story rehearsal and performance techniques.
