Stories in Transit XII: Workshop with Stories & Supper

A collaborative workshop with Stories & Supper, in Walthamstow.

9th October 2021

Gnome House, Walthamstow.

This was our first workshop with the Stories & Supper group, generating stories in three groups using words and images gathered into a basket and redistributed, which were threaded together and put into song. The results were really very lively and wonderful and the whole room rang with laughter, excitement and musical instruments. Many of the participants really enjoyed the music making. There was a lyrical song, very short, from one group; a long and complex ballad recitative from another, and a rousing percussion piece from the third group.
