This new short course is a brilliant opportunity for anyone who has a story to tell and wants to use storytelling as a way to engage an audience in performance delivery.

You could already be in performance art, a writer, artist, actor, working in the theatre, creative or student.

No specific experience is needed, just an interest to explore storytelling and performance practice, a desire to tell a story and convey it with intention and clarity.

Over three sessions you will develop your skills and confidence in public speaking, communication, develop your voice, listening skills, movement and concentration to enhance your storytelling capabilities.

Explore and refine your skills with coaching from a professional theatre director at an accessible price.

This course runs for three sessions, over three consecutive weeks at our Lismore campus.
