Casa Museo Eduardo Frei Montalva invites you to discover the art of storytelling through the workshop “The Art of Storytelling“: a guided tour to encounter with the narrator or storyteller that we all have. Through the art of the word, improvisation, body and senses, participants will learn the ancient art of storytelling; an ancient oral, physical, emotional and sensitive collective practice.
Each of the five sessions of the workshop is structured flexibly to suit the characteristics of the participating group. Guided by the workshop facilitator, Juanita Urrejola, the activity combines exercises, games, theory and practice. It is a self-paced workshop, which offers constant challenges, spirit of game and above all, respect and commitment to share the stories of each one.
“We know that at the beginning of civilization, some stories and cultural traditions were transmitted orally from generation to generation. Some fragments of that historical memory are preserved precisely because humans are innate storytellers and from that perspective, it also exists the biographical memory. Justly, this workshop aims to bring the storyteller that we all have,” said Maite Gallego, Deputy Director of Casa Museo Eduardo Frei Montalva.
In order to give the participants the tools that will allow them to tell a good story, the content of the sessions will include elements such as: the voice and body in service of the image; the cinematic language to tell a story; creative activation; understanding of the kinds of stories, and choice, work and presentation of a story.
The “Art of Storytelling” workshop, aimed to an audience of ages 17 and older, will take place on Saturday 2, 9, 16, 23 and April 30, at Casa Museo Eduardo Frei Montalva (Hindenburg 683, Providencia). Registration is free and made through the mail firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone (56-2) 2881 8674. Limited capacity.
