But what is storytelling?

Storytelling in its simplest form is the art and craft of telling a good tale, to a live, present audience
Human beings have been telling each other stories since cavemen first shared the tales of their hunt and dreamt of the spirits that granted food and water.
In the modern age, despite astounding developments in entertainment technology, storytelling is experiencing a revival. It is a co-creative art form, the story forming in between the teller's words and the listener's imagination.
Neuroscientific studies have uncovered a wealth of fascinating effects of listening to story, from paired neural coupling to affecting levels of oxytocin and dopamine release. Psychologists and psychotherapists have long used traditional tales and biographical storytelling to help their clients make sense of life experience and educators harnessed the engaging quality of a story to capture their students' attention. 
Whether you are drawn to storytelling from a love of myth, a fascination with the human voice, desire to hear a tale well told or an interest in the applications of the art and craft of story, come and visit a Brighton Storytellers event to experience it for yourself.
