This workshop represents a combination of classical vocal repertoire and the art of storytelling which allows you to explore and develop your musical artistry through the poetic and creative possibilities that oral storytelling offers. Pianoforte accompaniment will be provided during the first and last day of the course.
Storytelling is an art form that has its own particular rules to give life to a story. Such methods as imagination sequences, storyboarding, improvised telling and personal story are the springboard into each story-world and character, and allow every singer to play with and access the repertoire on a profound personal level.
Ragnhild A. Mørch, www.ramorch.com, is a full time storyteller and focuses on storytelling both as performance art and as an educational tool. She performs at festivals across Europe and her repertoire spans from fairytales to myths; autobiographical stories to tall tales. She is Artistic Manager of the training course “Storytelling in Art and Education” at the Berlin University of Arts. Her studies in physical theatre and mime provide her with a unique physicality and precise timing and she tells her stories in Norwegian, German or English.
