Spontaneous Storytelling San Francisco
Do you have funny or amazing stories from your life? Do you enjoy true storytelling along the lines of The Moth? Are you wanting to have more connection and affection in your life? This event is for you.
Spontaneous Storytelling is a different kind of storytelling show that combines the fun of meeting new people with hearing and telling true stories. We start out as strangers to each other, but by the end of the night everyone has made some interesting new connections and new friends. This event is designed to repeat every month so you can continue those friendships and come up with new stories to tell.
How it works:
When you come in, grab a game card and a pen.
The object of the game is to meet as many people as possible and learn something interesting about them as you go. They'll ask you questions, too! Everyone there is playing.
Write down the answers on the card. Later, the host will read out loud some of the funny things people come up with. It's anonymous, so feel free to be outrageously truthful.
After about a half hour of mingling, it's time for true storytelling. First the host will ask the audience for themes. Shout 'em out and we'll write them on the board. Next, put your name in the hat if you want to tell a true, five-minute story on any of the themes. It's called Spontaneous Storytelling because we don't practice beforehand!
The Rules: no reading or notes allowed; stories must be true, about you, and five minutes or less. We'll have a volunteer timer to help you stick to the time limit. And, we will give out free drinks to four lucky storytellers. It doesn't even have to be a good story! But it has to be true and about you. If it doesn't fit one of the themes, that's OK too.
Playing the icebreaker game is optional.
Telling a true story on stage is optional.
Having fun is not optional!!
