Have you ever been to a public reading by a renowned author, and watched them hide behind their own words, avoiding the eyes of their fans? Then they sign their books, often without even glancing inside. For all they know, they could be autographing copies of ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’. We storytellers are different. We immerse ourselves in our audience, aiming our stories to each and every one of them. We don’t just share stories; we embody them, using our very presence as a signature. Yet, while our craft is every bit as vital as novelists and poets, they’re the ones basking in accolades, media spotlights, honorary degrees, and HBO deals.
To level the playing field, storytellers have united to shake up literature. Imagine Proust’s magnum opus summarized in mere minutes, Don Quixote sent on a wild adventure aboard the Pequod, or Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein with a happy ending.
Those ‘writer-writers’ might fight back, but our voices will be louder than their cease-and-desist letters. Join our rebellion!
The host for that night will be Fer Rodil.
Doors open at 19.00, event starts at 20.00.
Dad is making soup.
