In this session, GRAMMY-nominated storyteller and produced playwright Milbre Burch discusses the use of solo shows interwoven with traditional and personal stories, spoken word recordings, character monologues, or ten-minute plays to address social issues.

"The Dramaturgy of Storytelling" breaks down the process of Burch's Tales from Beyond the Ban: Folktales from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen and her other work. Participants will go step-by-step in order to apply the involved dramaturgical process to their own work.

*This session accompanies a virtual performance of Tales from Beyond the Ban at the online 2020 Women’s Theatre Fringe Festival. Check the schedule for dates/time(s) of the live show, accompanied by post-performance talkback(s) with the performer and others.
