Internationally, live storytelling events are thriving, especially in the US and UK. Trademarked storytelling organizations such as The Moth or The Scoop have been selling out within 48 hours and creating the sort of buzz that rock concerts are usually famous for. It’s the compression, the construction and the sheer originality of each person’s retelling that makes being in the audience so fascinating. The length, for one, is too short to be boring and yet long enough for plot, pace, adventure and humour to sneak in.
‘True Stories Told Live. Amazing to be in presence of people remembering, shaping stories in the moment. Funny, awkward, moving, beautiful ...’ - as tweeted by Emily Perkins
All profits goes to Christchurch Red Cross Appeal
