In this fun and intimate workshop, we will share stories, play games and help craft moments from your life into captivating true stories.
Working with performance techniques we help you bring your story to life by performing the story rather than simply re-telling, embodying characters, movement, experiencing the story again rather than simply remembering what happened and we will work together in small groups where you will connect with others and share experiences with lots of feedback and support. You will learn and practice practical techniques to make your stories memorable and to help put the audience directly in the action.
Taught by: Michael Kossew (Co-founder and host of storytelling night Natural Born Storytellers’ which runs monthly at Camden Comedy Club, produces larger scale ‘Best Of’ shows at the Lost Theatre and travels to UK festivals. Michael currently runs workshops across London including a successful short course at Camden Comedy Club earlier this year.)
Wed 18th March. Time: 8:00pm (Doors open 7:30pm) Tickets: FREE!
Important life events always leave a mark, embed themselves into your psyche and change you forever. ‘Scars’ brings people together to share these momentous events and stories that have left them changed. We could hear stories about physical scars, emotional wounds, or perhaps a wonderfully happy occasion left you scarred for entirely different reasons.
Our nights are friendly. open, intimate and honest and the stories moving, life-affirming, shocking, captivating or just plain hilarious. It’s different to a comedy night where the expectation is laughter… here laughter comes, but it’s a part of a whole breadth of other emotions and reactions to the stories and it makes for rich and fulfilling entertainment.
We find our storytellers organically and through word of mouth so literally anyone with any level of experience can take to the stage… If you’d like to tell a story at one of our future nights here are our upcoming themes. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a story outline to claim a spot.
