Mythologizing Personal Stories


Apr 18, 2020 to Apr 18, 2020

Saturday, April 18th
  9:30am - 12.30pm
Taught by Genevieve Aichele


“Memoirs are our modern fairytales” - Francine Prose, New York Times

In programs like Moth Radio, people are encouraged to tell their life stories but, just like traditional myths and legends, these “true tales” can also become powerful tools for healing, teaching, inspiring and community-building. Explore techniques from traditional folktales, docu-drama and applied theatre to transform personal tales into stories both universal and archetypal.

This masterclass is designed for public speakers, storytellers, teachers, writers. Please note that their is an optional add-on of private coaching and group follow-up session available.
Students will participate via Zoom. You will be able to access the class through a computer, smart phone or by calling in on a landline. Genevieve's instruction will be given through this method, and students will have the opportunity to introduce themselves, explore their stories, and learn performance skills.

In this challenging time we know that our mission of sparking conversation, connecting individuals and strengthening community is even more important and therefore we are working to find innovative ways to continue our work together. Thank you for diving into this experiment and exploring the what it means to tell personal stories in this new (virtual) way.
