Trickster Stories - Dec 13
Part 2 - Tricksters - December 13 - Online storytelling workshop
Bernard Shaw once said, “If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you.” In the old medieval court, there was only one character that could tell the king the truth and get to keep his head on, that was, the Jester. This ancient form of what we now call a Joker wasn't limited to Europe in the Middle Ages. In fact, it can be found all around the world. In the Caribbean folklore, it would be the mischief Anansi The Spider. In Turkey and Iran, the wisest fool known by the name of Mullah Nasruddin and in the Jewish tradition, Hershele. All of these and many other characters in stories convey their wisdom through mischief and/or in a humorous way.
In this week’s session, the participant will receive a story about a trickster from around the world. Through a series of exercises learn to bring it to life and tell it in a humorous and animated way.
