THE STORYTELLING POET
I am a storytelling poet who performs interactive storytelling sessions with my audiences through pieces in both English & French; enabling them to have a say on how the stories told go.
WHAT IF I TOLD YOU YOU COULD CHOOSE SOMEONE ELSE'S REALITY?
Live interactive storytelling is a performance concept in which I begin by performing the introduction before having a conversation with the audience and asking them to vote between two possible options. Each option leads to a different poem which represents a possible reality for the characters in the story being told. I then perform the poem that goes with the option with the highest percentage in the vote. This process of performance-conversation-vote goes on until we reach one possible end to the story.
Online interactive storytelling follows a similar process and parts to the stories are posted on a weekly basis in my 'Stories' page.
It's always fun to take part in and you get to have a say in a character's reality.
I am also the Founder of Ink Overflow - a social enterprise promoting art and self-expression in its many forms - having started it in 2014.
