A six week course facilitated by Deborah with seven years' experience guiding participants to create theatre and storytelling work with a focus on the personal journey.

Embodiment of character - moving in and out of character when storytelling

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.


Those new to storytelling and those with experience in theatre and storytelling alike.

This will be unique journey guided by Deborah - in response to the needs of the group.

She will tailor feedback as well as lead group exercises and offer participants space to explore.
