A taster weekend for beginners and improvers

Each storyteller has their own voice and Jan Blake is known for her dynamic and generous style. This lively taster weekend will give a flavour of her work including developing presence, inhabiting your body in movement and gesture, pacing, rhythm and care of the voice.
This course draws on Jan’s extensive repertoire of tales from Africa, the Caribbean and Arabia.
So be prepared for a wonderful journey!
Jan will demonstrate how to bring your own individual stamp to a story and there will be the opportunity for each participant to give a short performance within the group on the final day if wished.

Jan Blake has been telling stories worldwide for over 25 years. Specialising in stories from Africa, the Caribbean and Arabia she has a well-earned reputation for captivating performances that enchant all ages. Recent highlights include the Hay Festival, TEDx and numerous summer festivals.
