The International
School of Storytelling

Opening a window to Storytelling and Greek Myths

This weekend is for beginners eager to explore the basics of storytelling: how to remember a story and how to begin making it your own. The stories we’ll be working with? Greek Myths!

Traditional stories are called so because they belong to a tradition or culture. The more you explore that tradition, the better you tell that story.

This weekend we’ll laugh and dance our way into the light of the sun, the blue of the sea and the sky and the rocky landscape of Greece. We will catch a glimpse of the world of Ancient Greece, the cradle of our western civilization. By the end of the weekend you will have told a Greek myth in a supportive and friendly environment and you will have started your storytelling journey.

“As you set out for Ithaka
hope the road is a long one,
full of adventure, full of discovery.”
from  “Ithaka” by Constantine Cavafy (1863 – 1932)

No previous storytelling experience nor any knowledge of Greek Myths is required.
