Join us for a live storytelling event organized through the organization Ex Fabula, a non-profit committed to strengthening community bonds through the art of storytelling! From their website, “By producing live storytelling events, we celebrate the power of true and personal stories to connect us. Paradoxically, stories reveal our shared humanity while also acknowledging that each person’s journey is unique. We can learn a lot from listening to the life experiences of those who are different from us. Each tale of struggle, triumph, and discovery reveals who we are now, and who we hope to become.”
We’ll be attending a monthly StorySlam on December 14 held at Times Cinema. Doors open at 630p, event starts at 730p. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in advance online. These events are very popular, so buying your ticket ahead of time is encouraged! (They sometimes sell out.)
From Ex Fabula’s website, “StorySlams strengthen community bonds by creating spaces where people can connect over true, personal stories. No props, no notes – just the elements of ‘Story. Stage. You.’ This StorySlam will feature stories related to the theme of “Perfect Storm”. You can come just to listen – or, if you have a story related to the night’s theme and can share it in 5 minutes or less, throw your name in the hat for a chance to take the stage. Another way to share stories is via UltraShorts, which are brief, true personal stories written on slips of paper and then read onstage by the emcee. At the end of the night, the audience votes and an Audience Favorite is crowned.”
This event is for members only. Please let us know if you’re coming or contact us with questions (MilwaukeeHMN@gmail.com).
