Telling a story

29 June 2020


Above all, you have to believe in it, to be in history, to live it!


  • Dressed: be dressed soberly, so as not to divert attention, or put an outfit in the theme.
  • Voice: put his voice, in the middle register, the tone of the conversation, to maintain a reserve in order to be able to express things more violent or softer, to spare its effects. Change the register to avoid weariness. Don’t talk too loud, not too fast. Well articulate.
  • Look: watch the audience, look at it, hold the whole audience under their gaze. Having a smile in your eyes must be a pleasure for listeners.
  • Standing or sitting, to be able to spare its effects by getting up.

Camping the characters

It’s about bringing out the main characteristics of the characters and holding them to the end:

  • use different voices (soft voice, low, fluted, energetic, authoritarian, friendly, conciliatory, cheerful, mocking, hypocritical, angry, disgruntled, fearful, secret, echo…)
  • express feelings with face feelings (joy, sadness, panic…)
  • miming with his body (bulging torso, majestic walk, stupid servant, humility…)
  • image with your hands (the flying bird, money, tenderness, joy, hope, violence, hospitality, healing, work, flight, music…)


  • Consider toddlers. The context must explain the difficult words (e.g., publicans: people who took the money and stole it).
  • The language must be varied and lively, with twists and turns, it must arouse interest.
  • Household the end of the story (the fall).
