There is nothing like coming together to celebrate the power of true, personal storytelling. This is the tradition of New York’s “The Moth” but it is also the age-old tradition around campfires and within families.
On this night seven stories will be told from people’s lives – no fiction, no fantasy, just stories well told from people’s lives. Stories that reflect the humanity, the joy, the grief of people living each day. This show starts with the theme, “After the storm” with storytellers exploring the theme, no doubt in unexpected ways.
Since each story is true and every voice authentic, this show will dance between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience. Rachael Mead, author of The Application of Pressure has been commissioned to assist each storyteller with thanks to Adelaide Hills Council.
