Storytelling is the interactive art of using words and actions to reveal the elements and images of a story while encouraging the listener’s imagination. It is the contact between the storyteller and story listeners that make a story come to life. … The art of Storytelling reflects the use of the story to paint word pictures, using the sound, rhythm and repetition of words. Storytelling involves a two-way interaction between a storyteller and one or more listeners. The responses of the listeners influence the telling of the story. In fact, storytelling emerges from the interaction and cooperative, coordinated efforts of teller and audience.
