New! Storytelling Nest at Maine Fiddle Camp with Jennifer Armstrong and You!!(2/1/2019)
This tasty treat of tale telling will be offered the first June Weekend. Our weekend together will be an active exploration of voice and storytelling styles. It is not a story swap. You don’t need to know any stories or how to tell them to come. We will work with a few simple stories and practice telling them in a variety of ways; fairy tale, tall tale, personal story, story poem, with music, with movement, tandem telling, readers theatre. We will play with vocal tones and sounds, facial expression and gestures, timing and silence. We will build up our storytelling vocabulary to apply to any story you may want to tell. “Once upon a time there was a fiddler, a dancer and a storyteller. And if they can live happily ever after, why not you and me?” Register now to join in the fun!
