Chime, Chatter and the Moving Story : Workshop with Nick & Emily Hennessey,
Sat 7th Oct 10:30am to 4pm

Music and storytelling are deeply connected. They share cadence and pace, and underscore each other perfectly. But what about the voice?

This workshop will focus on the inherent musicality and rhythm of language. Beginning from the premise that all natural speech is musical in its chime and chatter, we will explore the full vocal range of speech, playing with pitch, tone and rhythm, and finding ways to support and enhance the telling of a story.

We will also look at physicality in storytelling, exploring how we can use gesture and movement to help tell a story, and explore exciting ways of using spacing.

Wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to get telling and moving!

Bluecoat Story Night

Where stories go for a good night out. A monthly event dedicated to performances of stories and readings. £3 Tickets from Bluecoat, available on the night.

 

It’s the night when story-tellers, story-readers and keen audiences join in the enjoyment of story. We also welcome songs which tell a story.

 

The first half of the evening will be for all-comers, - announce yourself on the night and, if there’s a story-space, we’ll fit you in. First come first served. The second half will be by invitation of the curator of that particular night.

 

We ask contributors to stick to some simple rules:-

- all written stories to be original creations

- first half stories to be no longer than 7 minutes (for readers that means about 1000 words of text) – and we will be strict about this. Watch out for the gong…..!

- if you have a longer telling or reading to offer please submit your request by Monday of the week of the Story-Night to yourstorynight@outlook.com and we’ll let you know soonest if we can fit you in to the second half of the night.

- please try to match your story-content to the interests of a wider audience

 

If you are unsure about reading a written story yourself we may be able to find an experienced reader to do it for you. If you would be interested in this please give us some notice.

 

So do join us every month and if you’re just keen to sit back and listen we can guarantee a rich and satisfying audience experience – a good time will be had by all.
