We’ve been working on something bold over the past few months! After several fantastic, room-busting open mics this spring, we’re unveiling three exclusive evenings of storytelling featuring a mix of some of Ottawa’s most exciting emerging storytellers and seasoned performers with a penchant for mixing storytelling and other art forms. Join us for three evenings of stories born of dreams and visions, passions and obsessions.
All shows happen in the Arts Court Studio (that’s the cozy, cabaret seating performance venue right outside the Arts Court Theatre!). Come to one show or all three – each one features a different line-up of performers! Tickets to any of the shows can be purchased in advance through EventBrite or at the door.
Thursday, September 11: Soul Preservation
Four storytellers and four stories about the art of survival, protection, and perseverance. Our four tellers will wow you, challenge you, and take you to places you’ve never even imagined. BONUS EVENT! We’re lining up a pre-show panel on the Art of Solo Performance to kick off the start to this new series. The full panel line-up will be announced soon!
Thursday, October 9: Exposed
Personal stories of revelation, triumph, and acceptance. Presented in partnership with our friends at Jer’s Vision, an ensemble of storytellers will make your heart ache, sing, laugh, and yearn.
Thursday, November 13: The Horror Within
An improvised storytelling invention inspired by the macabre writings of H.P. Lovecraft. This show features the exotic talents of out-of-towners Dave Morris, Missie Peters, and Steven Ray Orr (Victoria, B.C.).
