THE STORYTELLING FACTORY
A week of collective work around the question of story and storytelling: “to tell one’s story, how, why?”.
With the intervention of French actresses and comedians.
This workshop will be filmed and recorded by two film technicians.
Several possibilities will be investigated:
An OTHER Storytelling: portrait
How do you tell your story? By what means? Forget the interview, the mandatory questions, intrusions: dancing, singing, painting, playing, … or tell how we’d do it.
Each artist will be asked to propose a form by which he thinks he can tell his story, how to convince someone of his sincerity, of his truth, of his legitimacy to be heard.
Tell us a story: a thousand and one stories
Everyone tells a story, any story: that has only a beginning a middle and an end, a story of exile or not, a personal story or not, made up or true, a childhood story or a tale.
We will work to create links between each story, to look for meeting points. Then we will try to transform all these stories in one, and weave a common narrative.
A CHORAL OF STORIES:
an encyclopaedia of stories
Everyone tells his story together in his own language. Camera face, like a real choir. HF microphones will be provided. The voices that rise and fall in a score composed together: solos, choirs.
MY STORY YOUR STORY
Two people: an artist and an actor who pervert the situation of an asylum interview. The actor does not remain silent, he also speaks. How stories mingle and meet.
A postcard filmed in a location chosen by each artist who addresses a person of his choice and tells him of exile in France, real or dreamed.
Monday 23 to Friday 27, every day from 2:30pm to 6.30pm
– Registration required. You have to confirm your presence by e-mail : firstname.lastname@example.org
Participants may not be French speaking.
This workshop will be an opportunity to make portraits that could be spread.
