~節氣說故事~
Storytelling

「留住孩子與生俱來的想像力~」
Keeping Our Children’sNatural born Imagination

小時候,每當阿嬤在工作時最喜歡坐在她的旁邊,只為了要聽故事,每次聽著阿嬤講著傳說中的習俗故事,或生命裡的經驗…,都在一字一句中彷彿走入了故事的情境中。因此,「聽故事」是需要有幻想做夢的能力,「說故事」也需要有想像與情感溫度的造夢能力。」

When I was little, I always stayed with my grandmother for story time. When she narrated those folk tales or her life experiences, I felt her words and imagine myself wandering in her stories. It takes the ability to dream for story listeners. On the other hand, it takes emotions and imaginations to make those beautiful dreams for storytellers.

說故事是門藝術,能滋養人類的靈魂,故事能深入觸動內心孩給予力量。在道禾,我們常說:「對著孩子說故事,不能只是拿著繪本一字一字的唸給孩子聽,而是要佈置一個故事情境,並一邊操偶一邊訴說著故事,每個偶在故事的角色對話中彷彿有了生命,遊走在偶戲台上,戲台跟戲偶就像真實地故事呈現在面前,於是眼睛的視覺畫面讓孩子開始專注,耳朵的聆聽讓孩子充滿對文字的想像。」

Story-telling is a fine art. It enriches our souls, touches our hearts, and gives us strength. Here in Daohe, we neither read stories word by word, nor do we do monologue. Instead, we set up the scenario in advance and tell the story with emotions and empathy. The way we deliver our story gives the puppets life. By doing so, the story we tell unfolds naturally and authentically, which always draws our children’s attention to listen and watch.

道禾說故事,也是一種美學的浸潤與滋養,佈置好一個故事台、帶領孩子靜下心來、唱著歌開始,整個氛圍充滿著情境美學。我們希望~老師對故事熟悉且有感覺,於是在說故事的同時,教師加入了生命的厚度與情感,於是,故事有了溫度、有了感情、有了人味;我們希望~孩子在聽故事時,對眼前的戲偶進行想像開始在腦海裡產生畫面,去保留每個孩子對畫面的不同幻想,而不是接收繪本的單一圖像、被故事畫面框架住了。聽故事的過程,孩子透過老師的口語敘述以及語調的接收,因孩子的感受不同於是每個想像出的情境畫面也就不同,在各自的感官接受中留住孩子與生俱來的想像力,進而孩子長大後展現出來的創造力也就多元且獨特。

Telling a story in Daohe is a form of aesthetics. Our teachers instill their feelings and perspectives of life. That enriches the story with perception and humanity. We hope our children form their own pictures and interpretation when listening to stories, instead of passively receiving the story plots and limiting their imaginations. Every child perceives what he or she hears differently when they listen to the story. It is also our hope to see that every child exhibits their creativity in a unique and diverse way when they grow up.
