Storytelling workshop for Open Learning Ireland

Saturday 2 March 2013 from 2 to 5 pm 
Seomra Spraoi (upstairs), 10 Belvedere Court, Dublin 1 

Lay your hands on the most powerful creative tools of the 21st-century bard.

Across Europe, a new bardic movement is emerging, drawing on a deep well of international tales and applying powerful dramatic techniques to bring new life to European storytelling. This workshop offers an enjoyable introduction to the new bardic art, through an afternoon of storytelling games and exercises:
Which rasa? - a game of emotional flavours
Storyboards for live tales
Whose story is it? - for liars and deceivers

Workshop facilitator Coilín "The O'Hashugh" is the prime mover in a brand new school of Irish storytelling, focused on innovation. Having studied film at the European Film College and Screenwriters Copenhagen, both in Denmark, he brings a keen appreciation of dramaturgy to his work as a storyteller. He is the founder of the Narrative Arts Club, which has been producing storytelling shows and workshops in Dublin since 2005. Read more about the Narrative Arts Club here:
