The Story Studio's 2-Day Storytelling Workshop (https://thestorystudio.org) is a perfect weekend intensive for those dipping their toes into storytelling waters for the first time, AND for seasoned performers wanting to brush up on skills or focus on a new or challenging project. The 7-or-so hours of class include lecture, discussion, individual and group exercises, performance time, and feedback and critique. Students will leave having developed and presented at least the first draft of a 5-7 minute personal story to perform onstage, and will come away with tools for developing narrative material that are applicable to a wide variety of settings: theatre, story slams, written memoir, podcasts, lectures, corporate training, TED talks, business presentations, and more.
Saturday consists of interactive exercises that will help students identify and refine a story to tell to the class. On Sunday, students will perform their stories in class, and receive in-depth feedback from their instructor and classmates.
This class is open to everyone. No experience required.
Taught by Minneapolis actor/writer/storyteller Amy Salloway (www.amysalloway.com).
