DECALOGUE. STORYTELLING CONDITIONS
1 Storytelling requires peaceful, serene spaces.
The delivery of a storytelling session must take place in a room dedicated exclusively to the activity. That way noise and other activities which may distract the attention of the public are avoided.
It is important that the temperature in the room is pleasant; neither too high nor too low, so that both the public and the storyteller feel comfortable.
It is essential for the successful execution of a storytelling show that it is not located in a transit area (lobby, entrance hall, corridor, common area, etc.) as the continuous interruptions and possible noise will prevent the creation of a good listening atmosphere.
It would be useful to have the space in which the session is to take place for sufficient time in order to carry out the necessary preparation (set up, preparation of the audience and the storyteller, etc.).
