An Echo in the Woods: A Pop-Up Storytelling Intensive
Four evenings to focus on telling folk and fairy tales and the interplay between storytelling, transformation, and community engagement.
About this Event

Why Tell Tales?
Folk and fairy tales profoundly impact both the listener and storyteller. Exploring these timeless, authorless stories offers up deep insight and surprising connections that can ground and guide us. The best way to internalize the truth within the tales is to embody the narrative through telling the stories. And in turn, by telling them we leave an imprint on the stories making them even more relevant to ourselves and to our audience.

The core of our intensive work will be to explore the symbiotic relationship between storytelling, personal transformation, and connecting with the communities we inhabit.

This intensive is for anyone who wants to deepen their relationship with tales and telling. We’ll offer the 12 hours of structured time plus each participant will have an opportunity to book an individual session of dedicated personal time between the participant and a facilitator. The intensive will not culminate in a performance but if participants wish to share a story during our open storytelling session Friday evening the 26th at 7pm.

We’ll cover:

  • Discovering Tales
  • Approaches to Reading Tales
  • Writing by Forgetting
  • Telling Tales
  • Moving Presence
  • Moving Through Place
  • Ancient song
  • Movement Choir

Our Hosts
Kevin and Ilgaz Casey are international theater makers and storytellers who host an ongoing popup storytelling event, “One More Last Chance” in Helena, Montana. They’ll be in Brooklyn to host a four day storytelling intensive for anyone interested in the tradition of telling folk and fairy tales.

We'd love for you to join us for every session, but we understand life gets busy! Don't worry if you can't make all four nights – you'll still get a full experience.

We'll meet Monday through Thursday in the evenings from 6:00-9:00PM with an open storytelling on Friday at 7:00.

Our work will be held at Cottonwood NYC at 203 Driggs Ave in Brooklyn.
