The ‘Not So Happily Ever After’ Storytelling Workshop
Date and time
Rotary Centre for the Arts
Offered in English.
This fun and interactive storytelling workshop takes a look at fairytales and their wonderfully dark and gruesome origins, before they became all cute and disney-fied. The workshop includes a short presentation about story and plot, character archetypes, three act structure, and explores a number of fairy tales (complete with the audience acting them out). Flash group-work follows with people creating their own fairytales complete with a moral lesson. Some groups are chosen to pitch their ideas (time allowing).
