Storytelling in Theatre – a one-day workshop with playwright, director & actress Corinne Jaber.

”My work as an actress, writer and also director has over the years crystallized into exploring how stories, to do with the world we live in, can find a theatrical expression. How a story can be told in the simplest, most direct, and truthful way. This workshop will be for professional acters, playwrights, directors and dramaturgs and the purpose are for the participants to learn how to develop their storytelling and take it to higher levels. Our goal is to find the tools we need to take a story and make it into a small piece of theatre, exploring the different forms a story can take.”

Course structure
”I would ask each participant of the workshop to come with a five minute long story they connect to and consider relevant. They should come prepared to tell us the story in a way that we can engage with as an audience. From this pool of stories, we will select 3 stories on which we will work together with in smaller groups. We would be looking at developing dramaturgy through improvisation as well as through quick writing exercises, making use of movement, voice, and sound as equal forms of expression to find a way to tell the story as honest, direct and engaging as possible. So, arrive in clothes that you feel free to move in. The most important part about the story you bring, is that it is something meaningful that you have a connection to and want to work with. You can work with it as an actor, director, dramaturg or writer. Or, why not, all of the above?” Corinne Jaber
