Storytelling and Performance
with Peter Hornbostel
Students will prepare their own stories for performance. They will learn to tell stories from their own lives or lives of others, whether accurate or not, told to fellow students, school children, family, friends or enemies. The purpose of the course is for both the students and their audience to have fun. Students will tell their stories to the class, and the instructor will make suggestions as to how the stories may be told even better. The stories are normally told, not written. No memorizing is required; notes are permitted but not encouraged. In any case, the idea is for the teller to have fun, so long as he/she doesn’t bore the other students to death. That is the instructor’s exclusive prerogative.
The class will conclude with a performance.
Peter Hornbostel has taught this course three times. He is the Retired Artistic Director, RAAP Community Theater
