Autobiographical storytelling (ABS) is a practical storytelling approach to find your creative voice. This personal method has been developed through exercises, tools & insights from storytelling, directing, acting, visual arts, personal development, psychology, neuroplasticity, creative mindfulness and eastern philosophy — refocused into this practice of personal storytelling.
ABS helps to make internal processes, conscious. The eloquent sensory perception ingredient makes it a fun method to learn more about yourself and your unique creative process.
The goal is to find what works for you and to empower you to give a voice to the multifaceted layers of yourself so you can make (art)-work that creates purposeful, positive audience interaction.
THE STORIES WE TELL...
...are the filter of what we welcome into our lives. At the heart of autobiographical storytelling lays passion, human connection and the things we create together. These stories can initiate a transformation, both for yourself and in relationship with others. A compelling story lends meaning and unity, the listener is transported to another world, in which they discover new and different perspectives on personal and universal themes.

"Either video documentation, still images or writing
Frouwke's work takes you on journeys of the soul, self discovery and safe psychological and intimate portrayals of what it is to be human and how we are flawed but also perfect at the same time."
"Working with Frouwke means daring to look at each other, lovingly through trust and sincerity. I see a tremendous personal urgency for intimate confrontations (the difficult themes that occur in life) and to get closer to the core through the autobiographical story. Frouwke makes sensitive, intuitive and intellectually well-founded connections. Which ensures that an autobiographical story can enter into a dialogue with the collective."
