Storytelling Skills Course in Singapore
Storytelling has been around since 30,000-10,000 BC, which had started with the animal paintings on the cave walls and later on progressed to carving on stones through the use of sharp tools. And when the language had established among civilizations, storytelling has again evolved, from drawings and carvings to oral communication, to paper, to the theatre and to movies which can be witnessed in this day and age.
Why has storytelling left such an impact, that it’s engraved in our culture, tradition and even in our history? Besides storytelling being the main use of communication in the past, this is also because our brains are wired for stories. When being told stories, the brain wakes up. In comparison to a presentation filled with numbers and facts, only half of the brain is being worked, when being told a story, the entire brain wakes up, as the parts of the brain that is responsible for sensation and emotions are also being used.
However, simply telling a story won’t work in catching the attention of the audience. The story, in and of itself, must be interesting, therefore the story must be good, and to make a good story, it must start with the basics. There are story elements which must be referred to when making one, such as the title, the time and place, the characters, and the plot which consists of the exposition, the conflict, the rising action, the climax, the falling action, and ends with the resolution.
Storytelling, however, is no longer only used just for telling fictional stories. The method can be applied in varied presentations but must be used appropriately. Just by following the pattern of the beginning, the middle and the end, one can create a story. After is how
A good storyteller knows what the story is about, therefore they know what they are talking about. Going back to the structure of a plot, storytellers know how to organize the story well, on what must come before and after. Storytellers also know how to vocally express in order to bring the story to life, by applying dynamics in one’s voice, either tuning it up or tuning it down. They also make use of their facial expressions and movements of their body, to make the story livelier and as an aid for expression. And last but not least, storytellers know how to be creative about the story being told and how to entertain the audience.
