What is Oral Storytelling?

Oral storytelling is the act of telling a story aloud, usually without the use of written or visual aids. It’s an ancient form of art that has been used to convey history, culture, and entertainment for thousands of years. The storyteller may memorize the events of the story, but they often modify it during each telling to tailor it to the audience and maximize its impact. Unlike recorded media, there are no do-overs in oral storytelling since it is tradionally performed in front of a live audience.
