The Bear presents a Workshop in the Art of Storytelling on July 6th in Berlin

Storytelling is a skill that you can master. If you are willing to stretch your skills, knowledge, and imagination, you can become a compelling storyteller.

This inspiring, challenging, and uplifting one-day workshop in the ancient art of storytelling is presented by the creators of The Bear, Dyane Neiman and Ben McGuire.

What to Expect

You will learn the art of unpacking our ordinary stories to discover the delicious details and transformational moments that make them extraordinary.

Some of the topics we will cover in this experiential workshop are:

  • Why does your story matter?

  • What’s your unique voice and style?

  • Story as visual art – painting pictures on stage

  • Theatre - using physical space to create a theatre for your story

  • Embodied storytelling – using your body as another voice

  • The power in vulnerability

  • Overcoming fear and nerves

Storytelling Performance with Campfire & Catering

We create a supportive space for you to learn, improve, and have fun while growing a crucial skill for communication, leadership, and life. The day culminates in a nourishing dinner from Doll`s Kitchen and an “urban campfire” performance for you to tell your extraordinary story.
