Telling sites - workshop
Associazione Gruppo LeFalene
The Strolling Stories Project
This is a workshop about storytelling related to locations along an historic or artistic route, with the development of the stories enclosed within them.
It is assumed that landscapes and heritage tell us stories, stories that we can learn to decode and understand to fully appreciate them. The storyteller will therefore work to make them available to the audience, helping to decipher and shed light on the stories that can be, at times, obscure.
Storytellers use their creativity in developing the stories not only when there are no reliable data, but also when deciding how best to present a well-known story.
The story becomes a bridge to connect better and deeper with the town or museum or site that we are visiting or we are living in.
The purpose of the workshop is to illustrate different ways of working with stories and local heritage and to give each participant, through practical and direct experience, a taste of the basic requirements for creating a story related to a site.
