Workshop title:

"Moving Stories: Storytelling and Movement".

 

Workshop description:

 

This would be a Workshop on using movement in storytelling, which is something I do a lot in my own practice, and have taught to others for a good number of years.  In the Workshop, I use various aspects of Indian dance, and make postures, gestures, movements of numerous parts of the body, facial expressions, and mudras (designs made by one's hands and fingers) parts of the storytelling process.
