About the Event

On the page, traditional stories can seem overly repetitious. This is because they developed through oral telling, when the repetitive structure offered the opportunity for audience participation. A written version of a traditional story is stripped of many of the elements that made it successful - the expressions, gestures and undulations of the voice of the storyteller. In this lively and interactive workshop Daniel Morden will demonstrate and discuss how these elements can help hold the attention of primary school children. The workshop will begin with Daniel telling a story to a primary class. Once the children have gone back to school, participants will have the opportunity to analyse in depth what they have seen and begin to implement the strategies they have observed using a story from their own repertoire.
