One of the many things I learned at The Power of Storytelling conference in Romania, Bucharest, is that storytelling is the most democratic form of creativity. Murray Nossel, says that people can argue about politics, social and cultural beliefs, and opinions, but they can’t argue about experiences. Your story is what happened to you. I want to take a few hundreds words and tell you about my experience during this conference. I will share my experience in the form of lessons that stuck with me the most.
Stories are not just in words, they are also in movement. Danka Sekulovic, a circus artist from Belgrade, explores the storytelling elements of a performance. For a powerful performance you need to be able to express emotion, and take your audience on a journey. One way to do that is to tell a story with movement.
