“Stories have to be told or they die, and when they die, we can’t remember who we are or why we’re here.” – Sue Monk Kidd
19th Annual National Storytelling Week takes place this year from the 26th January till the 2nd February 2019 at schools, theatres, clubs, libraries, homes, and all over the country.
Storytelling is served to be “the ultimate person-to-person interaction”. Although many tools and devices are available to gain knowledge and information, storytelling is ultimately proved served to the most valuable way.
It is attributed to “the Lascaux Caves of Southern France” since the cave paintings are drawn in certain sequence of animals and human beings to reflect a story of “hunting practices used 15,000 years ago”. In fact, the storytelling technique is powerful as the first printed story: “the epic of Gilgamesh” published nearly 3,000 years ago as a result of Word-of-mouth storytelling from Mesopotamia to Asia.
Storytelling technique is amazingly leading you to experience the excitement, the tragedy, or any other feelings led into by the teller’s voice.
