StoryTelling is at its heart an oral
tradition that has been handed down by all cultures. It can be
education, the handing down of wisdom, lineage, tradition. It can be
entertainment, moving listeners to laughter, quiet, and tears.
It can be as simple as one teller using just
the voice to bring the audience to a place drawn from one's
imagination. But it is the audience that sets flesh to the framework
that is wrought by the teller's words.
Imagine one person on stage. No props, no
sets, just the spoken word. Simplicity, but not simple.
