'Workshop WarmUp & Preparation Performances'
a regular part of all workshops is a warmup to storytelling in general, storytelling performance, narrative structure, story creation and improvisation and other topics such as digital stories depending on the desired outcomes of the workshop session.

It can often save time and be more economical to provide this warmup and preparation as part of a combined performance session for all classes taking part in workshops as one large audience.

This means that, in the individual workshops we can move immediately to the workshop activities and that teachers get an opportunity to consolidate the warm up and preparation for specific students before their class workshop session.

content includes:
telling stories appropriate to the age group and the workshop outcomes,
telling stories that have been created or performed at similar workshops by students at other schools,
demonstrating some of the workshop activity eg improvising a story using narrative structure with the whole audience,
usually 45 - 60 mins long (depending on age group) with 2 told stories and 1 or 2 improvised stories and Q & A
if digital storytelling is included in, or the main focus of, the workshop series, then at least 1 or 2 digital stories will be projected and discussed
if writing and/or publishing is the main focus of the workshop then at least one written or published (hard copy or online) will be presented

price - $3.60 per student with a minimum of $360 (GST inclus.) per session

travel expense - for bookings outside of greater Brisbane, e.g. Gold Coast & Sunshine Coast, a travel fee of $20 per day is applicable. Please ask for a quote for bookings outside of SE Queensland. There will likely to be a higher travelling expenses, accomodation and possibly air fairs.

requirements - indoor space - preferably carpetted such as cleared classroom, drama room or library space, white board (screen and dataproject & speakers if digital storytelling included)
