This document has been put together by the members of AEDA and is an invitation to reflect on the different lines of training of oral narrators. In it we have tried to agree on the content and proposals that we consider recommendable when training storytellers. We hope you find it interesting.
- WHAT WE TELL WITH. We think it is important to acquire concepts of body/body language, voice and stage presence.
- THE VOICE ITSELF. We believe that all training and exploration in order to consolidate the voice itself is always useful: to feed originality, find uniqueness, to create one's own style, to put together a personal repertoire..all of this gives colour to the development of the activity and honesty to the work.
- WHAT WE TELL (1). We feel that it is advisable to have knowledge of traditional oral texts, as frequent reading of these texts, together with the preparation and incorporation of them within one's repertoire, allows the internalization of structures and strategies which are “naturally” oral and essential for the normal development of our craft.
