How do you tell a story? How do you overcome your fears of public speaking? How do you successfully engage an audience as a speaker, a performer or a professor? How do you find stories? What makes a performance enthralling?


International Storyteller Clare Muireann Murphy will be giving a series of workshops that tackle these issues (and others that arise).


Her focus will be:

·         Finding Your Voice

·         Understanding Narrative Structure

·         Developing Presence in Public Speaking

·         Learning Stories and How to Find Them

·         Integrating the Voice and the Body as Single Instrument


Clare’s work taps into the dynamic relationship between speaker and audience, and speaker and material. She will offer play-based workshops that use theatre techniques and games to learn narrative skills. This workshop is good for writers, storytellers, actors, performers, artists, teachers, creatives. It is also good for anyone working with children, in the community, in social work, anthropology, sociology, and psychology. It also applies if you are none of these things but have a genuine interest in learning how to tell a story.


The workshops will take place on Wednesdays, January 23 & 30, and February 6 & 13, 1:30 - 3:30 (location to be announced).
