Leap into Story

Artist: Noa Baum

Type: Residencies

Description

Students enjoy interactive discussions with dynamic activities and creative dramatics demonstrating how to tell a story in this storytelling residency. Students learn by working individually, in pairs, and in groups as Noa guides them to tell a story without memorization, learn story structure, develop the plot, listen to others, and use basic presentation techniques.
