We bring your stories to life through practical techniques that enable you to perform your story, to embody characters, create movement and to experience the events again, rather than re-tell. We will help you overcome fears to find your true storytelling voice and you’ll leave with practical techniques to transform your experiences and anecdotes into performable stores.
Natural Born Storytellers has been a mainstay at Shambala Festival for 6 years. We've been regaling the crowds with some wonderful personal stories and thus year we'll be telling them in the absolutely gorgeous Imaginarium venue. If you're at Shambala this year, pop on down and experience our brand of storytelling in a festival setting.
Our true storytelling shows are friendly, open, intimate and honest and the stories moving, life-affirming, shocking, captivating or just plain hilarious. It's different to a comedy show where the expectation is laughter... here laughter comes, but it's a part of a whole breadth of other emotions and reactions to the stories and it makes for a rich, fulfilling evening's entertainment.
“This was one hell of an evening. Like really properly captivating stories that enthralled, moved, tickled, challenged and above all entertained. Such a brilliant event” Audience member
Stories are meant to be shared!
Created by Michael Kossew, Natural Born Storytellers has been bringing smiles to the people of Shambala for 4 years by telling true stories from our own lives.
Our true-life storytellers and spoken word artists come from all walks of life and experiences creating a friendly, open, intimate and honest atmosphere. Our stories are moving, life-affirming, shocking, captivating or just plain hilarious and drawn from life experiences of our tellers and (sometimes) audience members.
This year we have a collection of short stories told by our collective along with any that the people of Shambala 2017 wish to add on the themes of ‘Festivals’ and ‘Getting Away with it’.
