Storyteller's voice and your voice - the subtleties of the voice: tone, emotion & colour

The dramatic build of a story - structuring an arc of experience for your audiences

What the story touches in you - understanding your relationship to characters and narrative


A story - you have written or a classic fairytale, myth, folktale or legend.

Bring a yoga matt for the warm up - or let me know if you don't have one.
