Storytelling with Archetypes with Nell Phoenix
This course has been arranged by Chwedl, the network of women storytellers in Wales.
Often as storytellers we chose stories instinctively, trust our guts to help us with the structure and rhythm of a story, and
rely on charisma to connect with our audiences. What do we do when we want to challenge our choices, a received understanding of a story
or how we relate to listeners?
Through Storytelling with Archetypes we can refresh our understanding of well-known repertoire, unwrap new stories and develop our own versatile storytelling voice. The work is physical, vocal and playful - even via Zoom!
We will work in an encouraging and supportive atmosphere - and be challenged in our practice.
Participants will need a good grasp of the English language, some storytelling experience and an open and curious mind.
Nell Also Says:
I have developed Storytelling with Archetypes over years of my own performance, storytelling and training work. I have used it as an inspiration for story work with young students, aspiring and professional storytellers. It is rooted in the work I did with John Wright and Frankie Armstrong nearly 30 years ago when I was working in physical and masked theatre.
I have taught ten week courses in London, and day and half-day introductions in Sweden, Belgium and The Netherlands. This is nourishing work for experienced storytellers.
WHEN 10.30-16.00 on Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th April, (You must be able to attend both days)
WHERE In your own home, on zoom. We will send you the link in good time
WHO Open to women, and those who identify as women, who have some experience of storytelling and are eager to develop their practice.

Sending you all very best wishes and a warm hug,
You are one step closer to hearing some fabulous stories!

Fairy tales are more than true, not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.
What if our education systems were to insist that teachers be poets and storytellers and artists? What transformations would follow?
