Did you know……
storytelling is as old as the road to Rome… uh, Athens. Aristotle, 3.5 century BC, writes his ‘Poetics’. He comes up with a whole series of storytelling figures of speech, such as Mimesis (performance), Catharsis (purification), Mythos (plot), Dianoia (theme) and Opsis (spectacle). Less thought out but just as influential is another well-known form of storytelling: the fairytale. And the nice thing: all the colorful figures in the fairytale are actually aspects of your person. The knight, the princess, the frog and the witch: you have them all in you. Oh yes, and let’s not forget: the narrator. There is a storyteller in each of us.
