Working on a performance piece? Or want to? Storytelling, comedy sketch, physical theatre or spoken word?

– Styles of performance & structuring principles i.e. narrative journey, use of space, use of rhythm, speaking with the body & movement.
– Your connection with the audience & structuring an emotional arc: offering audiences a complete journey, big or small.
