Storyscaping – Physically Illustrating Your Story

Storyscaping – Physically Illustrating Your Story

Jackson Gillman presents a workshop for storytellers …

How clear are you yourself with your stories’ physical setting? How well are you able to create an imaginary “stage set” and help your listeners visualize the landscape and action to support your story?  How can you best let your story move you?

Jackson will offer concrete exercises to assist you in honing your imagery, giving your stories strong foundations on which to build, and using natural gesture to convey what is happening and where.  Thinking and rehearsing spatially can do wonders for the effectiveness of your telling!

About Jackson: Jackson’s background in mime, movement and sign language is apparent in the physical eloquence of his telling. “Gillman is a masterly storyteller, carving entire street scenes with single gestures. His only prop is the space which he uses with a painter’s appreciation for visual composition.” – Christian Science Monitor
