Storytelling — The Different Ways We Tell and Take Part in Stories.

Good storytelling is immersive for the audience, but in different ways depending on how the story is told. Reading is passive and solitary; in contrast LARP is highly interactive and can be physically and emotionally involving. Books, cinema, theatre, games and role-play are only some of the ways we create, tell, and participate in stories. What are best aspects of storytelling by each method? What can we learn about ourselves, story, and life?  Is anything fundamentally changing in our love of story?
