Tell – Tales from the 204 is a new story telling show that will happen on Thursday, November 4th. People will be given 7 to 10 minutes to tell a personal story live on stage and without notes, told on a theme that story tellers can interpret how ever they wish. The mission, says organizer Amanda Yusishen, is to expose Winnipeg for what it really is, a city full of fantastic tales.
“Story telling events are becoming more and more popular in recent years and I decided to start TELL – Tales from the 204 after I had trouble finding the type of story telling event I wanted to attend and possibly, be a part of,” says Yusishen.
“These types of events have been going on for years in the states, mostly New York, Chicago and LA. If people want to get an idea of what the TELL- Tales from the 204 event may be like, they can check out such famous Story Telling events as The Moth or RISK, two of my personal favorites out there right now.”
If you’re interested in telling your story, contact Amanda at TELL204@gmail.com. The event will take place at Aqua Books on Thursday, November 4th starting at 7:30pm.
