‘The more you learn, the more places you'll go’ Dr Seuss

The Crick Crack Club runs an annual programme of two-day workshops and longer residential courses. These range from beginners and intermediate courses, specific and focused training, to advanced laboratories, mentoring and direction. We also design, devise and run training sessions for people in a range of other professions. We work with the most experienced and inspired workshop leaders in the country, and our core course programme is led by our very own Artistic Director, Ben Haggarty.

This two-day, practitioner-led workshop is aimed at adults with an interest in traditional narratives (folk tales, fairy tales and myths) and in their performance.

It will give participants an introduction to the core principles of contemporary oral storytelling, the process of visualisation, and of narrative patterns and structure. You'll discover your innate inner storyteller and begin to appreciate its skills.

Ben Haggarty has pioneered the re-visioning of storytelling as a contemporary performance art; his understanding of orality, metaphor, magic and the dramaturgy of performance storytelling is unsurpassed. World renowned for his physical, often challenging performances, Ben has a repertoire of well over 350 folktales, fairytales, epics and myths. He's a much sought after trainer and director, and is Honorary Professor of Storytelling at the Arts University of Berlin.
