Tell Your Story Workshop, March 2017
"This workshop challenges you to think differently about what story is and how to relate to it. It gives you the best kind of takeaway-- a way of thinking along with a concrete method to learn and keep practicing." - a November, 2016 workshop participant
The Tell Your Story workshop begins with the question, “Why Story? Why Now?”This prompt functions to expose blockages to clarity and create direction, which lays the groundwork for your story arc. Much more than a series of techniques, the Narativ Method supports self-awareness as the basis for achievement and success. Over four sessions, participants embark on a basic training in the Narativ Method and produce their story of the moment, whether for raising capital, giving voice to a cause, clarifying a brand, or personal identity.

Two Men Talking
Johannesburg 1974: A teacher asks two rival schoolboys to tell each other a story. Decades later, they meet by chance in New York and set out to transform the world through their real-life storytelling.
Two Men Talking is a live unscripted performance in which two men weave their life stories into a production that captivates audiences. Their story takes place between South Africa and New York City touching on issues of personal identity, HIV/AIDS, being Jewish in South Africa, and the creation of a lifetime friendship.
“Two Men Talking is our way of making sense of growing up white, Jewish, gay, and privileged under apartheid. Over the many years of creating our storytelling performance, we have listened to one another openly and non-judgmentally so that anything can be spoken. Our stories deal with difficult issues including harassment, homophobia, racism and AIDS, each of which has deeply touched our lives. We invite audience members to intimately share in our experiences. Two Men Talking combines elements of theatre, therapy and real life.
Our intention in performing is to create a sacred space, a moment of possibility that is healing for people and inspires audience members to tell stories of their own, and to value their own relationships. Each unscripted performance is absolutely unique in this continually transforming theatrical experience.”
Originally work-shopped at the Young Vic in London, Two Men Talking is the live performance of a friendship which began in Johannesburg in 1974 between Narativ’s founders, Murray Nossel, and Paul Browde. Created anew each time, the show has been performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, throughout South Africa and the West End in London, where it was selected as Time Out’s pick of the week.
