Like moths to a flame, audiences are drawn to simple, powerful stories. Add the element of competition, and you have The Moth’s brilliantly addictive StorySLAM!
Join The Moth and (RED) for the outrageously (and deservedly) popular storytelling series that challenges everyday storytellers (perhaps even you!) to deliver five-minute true stories based on a specific theme!
Ten stories. Three teams of judges. One triumphant winner.
The theme dujour is RED, a color commonly associated with love, danger, beauty, emergency, sacrifice, passion, fire, blood, anger, seduction and happiness.
Get tickets early, as spots for raconteurs and spectators alike go quickly (especially coveted spots on one of the Fatboy® (PRODUCT)RED™ Special Edition bean bags!). Each ticket sold will generate a donation to the Global Fund to fight AIDS.
Each ticket includes one complimentary glass of beer or wine.
