“Humanity’s legacy of stories and storytelling is the most precious we have. All wisdom is in our stories and songs. A story is how we construct our experiences. At the very simplest, it can be: ’He/she was born, lived, died.’ Probably that is the template of our stories. . . a beginning, middle, and end. This structure is in our minds”. –Doris Lessing
At the Talk Shop we believe in the power of stories (read the theory behind my work. PDF-opens in a new tab). Storytelling is a time tested method to learn, to entertain, to get us to think, to pass on cultural knowledge and to instil values. Stories help connect people as they are universal and can bridge cultural, linguistic, and age-related divides. It is one of the best means to help us to understand the world around us and our place in it.
The true art of telling stories lies in making them come alive, to enthral the audience while touching their lives in some way. That’s what we do in Theatre, on stage.
