The Story Project
The Story Project is our Communications Programme designed to take your communication skills to a new level. You will create a stage-worthy story and bring it to life, and crucially keep it alive right up to the performance.
What you will learn
You will work with our players to devise and develop a story, bring it to life from conception through to being performed on the stage. In 2 days you will:
|•||Explore images, ideas, language and events that will hold the attention of a live audience|
|•||Discover your own voice and style to structure a story that is stage worthy|
|•||Play with the quick, powerful, free, refreshing, natural, collaborative, energising, entertaining, persuasive, moving (and many more) elements of storytelling to become a great communicator|
|•||Explore the theme: to play with ideas you want to develop|
|•||Get to know your characters: by understanding their past to help shape their future|
|•||Work with them to develop narrative and dialogue: by considering their points of view|
|•||Observe how relationships develop: along with the setting and the impact this has on your story|
|•||Consider the different kinds of narration unfolding to develop the language you want to use|
|•||Work on developing a beginning, a middle and an end: by finding a central event|
|•||Sitting in the directors chair: use your voice to bring structure and allow your players to shape your vision, look for conflict and tension to add heat and light|
|•||Decide on the performance vocabulary that best tells your story: to add the finishing touches|
|•||Move on to think about how you’re going to stage your production: bringing your personal style to create the right theatrical environment|
|•||Work with your players: to maintain freshness and spontaneity right up to performance|
Who this is for
People who need to make an impact in their communication.
