Raphael Rodan is a master at finding a personal connection to old traditional stories. For this public masterclass we would like to invite one storyteller to work with Raphael, who will bring with him a story to work on. Usually, this happens in the closed environment of a classroom. But this time we will open the workshop to a larger audience, allowing visitors to witness the process of creating an individual personal connection to an ancient story. We hope that the audience will learn a lot from the process, and also will be exposed to a deeper artistic exploration of storytelling.
The Masterclass is free, but, due to a limited number of seats, reservation is needed. Please: e-mail your name and the zip code of the area where you live to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Subject: reservation for Masterclass Deep Connection / The Amsterdam Storytelling Festival
