Module Description

In this fun module, we experience stories and characters, sharing creative ideas in small groups, both in role and out of role, using tales from Greek, German and Irish myths and biblical traditions. We will gain a wider perspective on being a hero, developing mutual respect and empathy, all done in the safety of being in role. Suitable for adults of any age who wish to enjoy this art form: parents who want to tell stories to children, teachers of children, play therapists, storytellers.
