This masterclass will focus on skill development and performance elements. ‘The Embodied Storyteller’, aims to free up your expression and embody both written word, vocal expression, physical theatre, shadow puppetry and music to tell a story.
Participants will be introduced to new skills and discover how to better connect with an audience. Maja will work with participants, modelling strategies to deal with issues from the creation of characters and the collaboration process, in the production of original theatre. Participants will leave this master class armed with all the necessary elements and tactics to create their own original works.
