Fun with Aesop’s Fables a storytelling workshop led by Diane Edgecomb
Zany Animal Characters, Witty Plots and Human Foibles, Aesop’s Fables are just plain FUN to work with! These tales provide clever commentary on human failings by using timeless themes, characters and situations. Learn how to send-up contemporary situations that abound in greed, lies, excessive pride, excessive speed or an amusing lack of focus by improvising with these classic short tales. We’ll work with rhyme, word-play, exaggerated characters and absurd new situations to open up the fables to contemporary commentary. You’ll leave with a little gem to add to your repertoire while learning engaging techniques for working with “value” able tales.
