STORYTELLING WITH ARCHETYPES
This course is for experienced storytellers who wish to find new ways of engaging with traditional material.
'I am excited by storytellers who have an insatiable curiosity. How do we make new connections with the material we craft and tell, how can we be the best we can be? Storytelling with Archetypes bursts open barriers to creativity. That's what I call an exciting Tuesday night out!' Nell Phoenix
