Through spoken words, songs, movement, or dance, performance stories can entertain, teach, and share traditions and experiences.
In this lesson, Valanga and Scott will share with us a few tales of performing stories for an audience.
And they’ll give us some tips to help us harness our own amazing performance storytelling skills.
After a childhood steeped in role playing games, comic books and getting in trouble for drawing lizard warriors in the margins of exam papers, Scott has gone on to a career in the creative arts which has taken him through theatre, music, comedy, games, radio and television.
As an illustrator Scott works in the comics, games and children's book space.
Valanga Khoza is a consummate storyteller and musician. He shapes tales of his life into captivating presentations.
From growing up in a traditional setting in South Africa, to his travels throughout the world, he is driven by his struggle against racism and fight for freedom of the black people in South Africa.
Valanga has performed to audiences of adults and children at selected world music events and in many schools across Australia and the Pacific.
