Celebrating East African Writing!
Masterclass: The Art of Storytelling
With: Ernest Wamboye & Mshai Mwangola
Time: Wed 17th September 2:30pm – 5:30pm
Venue: Nairobi National Museum
Everyone can tell a story but not everyone is a storyteller. Storytelling is an art that demands repetitive practice, conscious narration, emotional engagement and meticulous language in order to keep an audience captivated and to pass an indelible message. Join master storytellers, Mshai Mwangola and Ernest Wamboye, to find out how to execute these. The two experienced master storytellers will grace a workshop of beautiful storytelling, engaging discussions and sharing on this beautiful art. Come with a story to tell and leave as a storyteller.
Kenyan performance scholar, Mshai Mwangola, is an oraturist, actor, director and story-teller. Equally comfortable on academic and artistic stages, her performances prioritise the words and lives of continental and diasporic Africans as she seeks to engage the communities with which she works in using story as an essential map to plot life, past, present and future.
