We thrive on sharing our experiences, thoughts and imaginations through story. From early community gatherings around winter fire circles to the ‘black box’ storyteller in most family living rooms to the new virtual tellers of the internet we have always found ways to tell stories.In this class we will explore the elements of story including observation, inflection, gesture and expression. We’ll play with character and do library research in folklore, myth and legend. We’ll experiment with types of stories from personal narrative, to pour quoi tales, to legends. We’ll pull stories from our experiences and our imaginations. Students will leave with a story to tell ---- at least about the experience of the day itself! That’s story. Date: April 16 and 17 Location: Central Park Elementary School Instructor: Rebecca Hom. According to Rebecca: “I was raised an Iowa farm girl, with no theatrical experience or aspiration. Then, at a writers’ conference in Sitka, AK I was introduced to storytelling. I have been performing, creating and gathering stories now for more than 25 years. I have presented school residencies, staff workshops and employee trainings in several states and story performances internationally.”
