Afternoon 04: Addicted to Story
‘You’re never going to kill storytelling because it’s built in the human plan. We come with it.’ – Margaret Atwood.
Storytelling is the most powerful way to put ideas into the world; it is the oldest form of education: Stories heal, entertain and provoke. Telling a story with strength, honesty and wit is the actor’s job and central to an actor’s training.
Students at the end of their second year at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London will run three seminars. Each one will focus on aspects of the acting training they have received; each seminar will be different as the focus will be decided by the seminar leaders according to their preferences and strengths.
