Story Telling

Story Telling. We all have stories inside of us that define us, shed light, make us laugh, help shape who we are and who we want to be. What's yours? The power and truth of personal stories destroys the lie that we are just another cog in the wheel... Storytellers can empower our moral imagination to envision how the world could work better. In other words, they help us mediate between the ideal and the real by cultivating the right balance of critical thinking and hope. Truth and falsehood belong to this mediation, but it is guided primarily by what we are made to believe is real, what we stand for. The art of storytelling erases the boundaries between storyteller and audience, enabling both to connect through commonalities, hopes, dreams and fears. Whether it be a humorous memory of childhood or a life changing moment, the stories we share connect us as people. Join Me (Christopher Rivas) as I help you discover and craft your story in a fun, supportive environment. Storytelling is not just for the performers. There is no experience necessary, you already have every thing you need to tell a story - You are alive, you have lived. If you're afraid of getting up in front of people, so are most of us, challenge yourself, and I help you get there without judgment. *Supplies you'll need for class: paper & writing utensil* If you want to get an idea of what we'll be doing check out some of my work: https://vimeo.com/96426086 https://vimeo.com/124235857
