Announcing our new feature storytelling series launching this fall at Arts Court!

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.).

Stay tuned to the blog and our Facebook page for the latest info on our feature series as we reveal more details!

About (un)toldottawa

(un)told is a monthly Ottawa event featuring original stories told live. Candid and heartfelt, whimsical and extraordinary, (un)told features authentic stories told in an intimate setting without notes, sets, or props. Each show starts with a theme. An ensemble of tellers – anyone who has an inkling to tell a story, regardless of experience – explores the theme, often in unexpected ways. This isn’t stand-up, pontification, or abstract performance art. The stories are reflective and enlightening and have never been told in this way before. It’s like getting together with our most enigmatic and introspective friends to connect through the spoken word. (un)told happens the fourth Monday of most months in Ottawa.
