Testimonials

“Seung Ah Kim’s workshop at Sydney’s International Storytelling Conference was a joy. It was very informative; a sharing of knowledge and an exploration of Korean culture. It was also a practical session in which I got to play and practice and add a new story to my repertoire with confidence and depth. Thank you Seung Ah, for your generous sharing of culture and valuable teaching. I will always remember you!”​

I was fascinated by storytelling, but after the course I can say that I have fallen in love with storytelling. I learned the intimacy between the storyteller and “their” story or the characters in the story. The course gave me a confidence to start learning stories. If the storyteller feels the story, it is easy to learn and remember.

I feel far more confident in my ability to tell a story. I also feel that this course will change (positively) the way I read and interact with stories. I think I’ll get more out of that now! I’m looking forward to occasions when I get to tell stories in future. I also learned some great stories!

“We really appreciated the performers’ life story which we cannot hear anywhere else.”

“I just fell in love with Korean culture.”

“We really appreciated the performers’ life story which we cannot hear anywhere else.”

Seung Ah is both true to the cultural story and able to seamlessly weave in her personal story which creates deep impact on her audience because they can more clearly see themselves in this journey too. Transformative. And what makes Seung Ah so special is the depth of heart, mindfulness and beauty she brings into every tale she tells.

Highly recommended."
