The New York Times hails The Moth as "the most popular showcase" of storytelling, a new art that has been "growing rapidly over the past decade."
10 stories, 3 teams of judges, 1 winner. The Moth is a non-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. At each StorySLAM, The Moth provides a stage, a microphone, a theme, and a host to guide the festivities. Storytellers toss their name into a hat and wait for their chance to share a true, crafted story from their life. If chosen, they have five minutes to regale the crowd. StorySLAM winners go on to compete in the Louisville GrandSLAM championship. No notes or scripts- just pure, old-fashioned, unadulterated storytelling.
Upcoming Louisville Moth StorySLAM: <b>Tuesday, April 24th at Headliners Music Hall.</b> Theme: DERBY. The prep, the parties, the aftermath. Romances, brawls and babies born during The Race of the Roses. The winning horse or the winning hat. The long build-up to those crucial 2 minutes and what remains when the dust clears. Decadent and depraved or decorous and dignified, bring tales of DERBY! Come tell your own story, or just come listen! <b>Doors open at 7pm, stories begin at 8pm. </b>Tickets available at themoth.org
