The Secret Art of the Storyteller

If you’re an aspiring performance storyteller, a new voice or emerging artist, or even someone whose been at this for some time but are in need of some nuggets of wisdom – then this is for you.

The amazing force of nature that is our Artistic Director, Ben Haggarty, is known for many things – his generosity as a teacher and mentor is one of them. And if ever there was a time for generosity, this is it. While our entire 2020 training programme has been cancelled, Ben has given us extracts from his curriculum, The Secret Art of the Storyteller, to share with you, for free!

Filmed at home during lockdown these short teachings cover all manner of things – from gesture and stance to language and composition.

View them in sequence, or dip into the ones that sound most useful to you. Use them wisely and they’ll prove to be gold-dust.
