The celebrated NYC radio show continue their debut UK event series. Do you have a story you have been burning to tell? The Moth StorySLAMs are open to anyone with a five-minute, true, story to share on the night’s theme.
This week the theme is HOME:
Prepare a five-minute story about HOME. Where you're from... your humble abode, your roots, your heritage or where your mother lives. Home is comfort, a refuge, domestic bliss! Or perhaps a dysfunctional swamp with no lifeboat in sight. Your zip code, your people, your culture, your pajamas. There is no place like home.
When the doors open, storyteller hopefuls put their names in The Moth “hat”. A half hour later, names are picked, and one by one, storytellers take the stage. The ten featured stories are scored by teams of judges selected from the audience. Each StorySLAM generates a StorySLAM winner. After ten SLAMs, the winners face off in our GrandSLAM Championships. Come sign up to tell a story, or just enjoy the show!
The Moth is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. It is a celebration of both the raconteur, who breathes fire into true tales of ordinary life, and the storytelling novice, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. At the center of each performance is, of course, the story.
