Type: Online Livestream
An online storytelling workshop for circus performers. Over 5 sessions, we look at how to tell stories authentically with presence and without script. We will use a range of material; folk tales, myths, contemporary and non-fiction to learn the fundaments of story structure, visualisation and how bring a story to life with spontaneity and improvisation. We will work together in a group of 10 in a supportive environment. No previous experience needed. In this current climate of financial uncertainty, we have decided to make the course free so it is available to all participants. The workshop will take place on Tuesday mornings 10-11:30 on 21st July, 28th July, 4th August, 11th& 18th August. You must be available to attend all sessions. Sessions will take place over zoom. If you would like to attend please email firstname.lastname@example.org by 14th July. Charlotte is one of the Artistic Directors of Ockham’s Razor, one of the UK’s leading contemporary circus companies and has been devising, directing and performing their shows since 2004. She has always been interested in how to integrate text and circus and in 2015 trained at the International School of Storytelling. This training was profoundly influential, both for her work in circus and also as she discovered a passion for the improvisational craft of storytelling in its own right. Since then she has performed numerous times at Spark London, at the Tellit Festival at Hoxton Town Hall and as part of the London edition of The Moth, Grand Slam. She has performed in two circus / autobiographical storytelling shows: MES' Me, Mother and Ockham's Razor's This Time which she also co-directed. She has taught storytelling workshops in various settings from primary schools to universities and has worked as a director combining storytelling and movement in NCCA's Impulse and Even the Stones, and as a consultant for Oddly Moving's He Ain't Heavy, Charmaine Child's Power and Sophie Postlethwaite's Glastonbury Whispers.
