Just as how we use words to stimulate the imagination of our audiences, let us storytellers use props in a discerning and resourceful manner to support our storytelling. In this exploration, let SAS Professional Member Verena Tay guide you in expanding the possibilities of using a chosen prop and then integrating these new options within your telling of a story, thereby further wowing your audience with your creativity.

Pre-preparation for Participants

  • Please come dressed in loose, comfortable clothing so that you will not feel constricted while doing the various physical activities.
  • Please bring at least one generic non-breakable prop (e.g. a piece of cloth, a stick, a ball) that you would like to experiment with.
  • Please bring at least 2 action-based stories that you would like to improve the telling of by using a prop in a variety of ways.
