Event description

Description

Storytellers' Camp is an intensive journey deep into the traditions and contemporary expressions of storytelling. The faculty, led by Camp Director Bob Barton, includes many of the festival’s national and international storytellers. Please see the Day 2 Schedule below.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions? Please email festivaloperations@storytellingtoronto.org if you have any questions about tickets.



Day 2 Schedule:

9:00 AM -11:30 AM: The Storyteller’s Voice

Description: Camp Director Bob Barton and voice specialist Cathy Nosaty share exercises to connect you to your voice, your imagination, and your sense of your audience.

12:00 PM -1:15 PM: International Storytalk: The Second Sight

Seannachaidh from Skye Seoras Macpherson tells stories of The Second Sight and discusses seers in Celtic and Druidic traditions.

1:30 PM -3:30 PM: Storytellers Camp Afternoon Workshops

Campers choose one workshop.

  1. Jess Smith - Story and Song: Jess will share some traditional Scottish Traveller stories and ballads, and explore with participants how story and song can be intertwined.
  2. Ron Evans - Storytelling Gifts: Carrying the oral traditions of his Metis and Chippewa-Cree ancestries, Ron rarely chooses his stories ahead of time, since the stories he tells are in response to his listeners. This is an opportunity to experience and discuss the stories that unfold, rather than a “workshop.”
  3. Peter Chand and Pavan Chand - "In the Mix" (Part 1 of a two-day workshop): Renowned storyteller Peter Chand and music producer PKCtheFirst share some of the techniques they employed creating their performance piece “Tongue Tied & Twisted,” incorporating live storytelling, music mixing and soundscapes. This exciting and unique workshop will give participants the opportunity to record part of a story live, and then enhance it by using state of the art mixing and DJ techniques. Each participant will leave with a recording of the finished story that they will have helped to create. Suitable for experienced storytellers. If you play a small instrument please bring this with you to the workshop. Limited to 6 participants.
