In the spirit of ArtsEmerson’s presentation of The Civilians’ You Better Sit Down: Tales From My Parents’ Divorce (playing OCT 25 – 30), ArtsEmerson (www.artsemerson.org) and massmouth (www.massmouth.com) invite you to a story slam on “home.” Where are you from? Who is your family? Bring your story about the people and/or the place you call home.
Like a poetry slam, a story slam is a performance based contest where volunteer judges choose the best true story on the theme. Anyone may sign up at the venue for a chance to tell their true, 5-minute, first- person narrative and a lucky 8-10 tellers will be chosen at random to perform their stories. Cast members from You Better Sit Down will serve as guest judges.
To get your creative narratives flowing, massmouth,inc. storytelling professionals will lead a workshop starting at 6:30 p.m to help you focus on finding and crafting a story from your own life experiences .
