This course focuses on storytelling in performance. Participants will be invited to bring a couple of stories to tell. More details will be supplied on booking.
The course is open to all and some previous performing experience – not necessarily with in situ: – is an advantage. If you think you might be interested, contact us to find out more.
An exploration of storytelling has been an important part of in situ:’s recent theatrical work. We’ve performed several of the great European story cycles, including Ovid’s Metamorphoses and Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, which was a hit at the Brighton Festival.
Your teacher, Richard Spaul, is an actor, singer and storyteller, with well over 30 years experience with in situ: and Cambridge Experimental Theatre. His recent storytelling performance work has focussed on ghost story and horror story genres, a fascinatingly rich field. He has created three popular solo performances over the last four years, featuring work by Edgar Allan Poe, Edith Wharton, Saki and others.
