Moth & Butterfly
A Monthly Night of Storytelling and Improvisation
Third Wednesdays of the Month
Wednesday 16th of April 2014
Upstairs @ Ard Bia, Spanish Arch, Galway
The Theme for April is:
'Up and Away'
Doors at 8PM - Admission €5 - tickets on the door
Moth & Butterfly continue into 2014 with their exciting series of nights, which brings together the art forms of both Storytelling & Improvisation. The night is Galway based but also travels to festivals and events around Ireland.
Each M&B night will have a special theme, and all Storytellers will be invited to tell a story that fits with that theme. For April 2014 the theme is 'Up and Away'.
Stories will be provided by the Moth and Butterfly Crew Creative team, and of course, by the Audience themselves!
There will be three types of Storytelling on the night:
Moth style stories must be short, true, thematic, and feature the teller themselves as a character.
Improvised stories will be created fresh on the spot – no two are the same!
Freefall stories are all other stories that still fit the theme – from fiction to fairy tales, from tall tales to a story in a song.
This is a night for oral storytelling, so no reading or notes allowed – just pure story!
The night is for both tellers and listeners, for without good listeners; there would be no good stories! There will be opportunity for people to tell and also to just sit comfy and join in the journey of the imagination.
Great stories invite us in for a listen. They don’t always have to be funny by any means. They draw from a wide emotional palette. We love to laugh, but also to cry, to growl, to gasp. We invite people to tell stories from the heart.
For more detailed information on how the night will work, please check out our page on Facebook.
The Moth & Butterfly Crew is made up of professional performers, writers and storytellers. They were inspired by the transformational nature of improvisation (Butterfly) along with the wonderful ‘Moth’ tradition of true Storytelling that originated in the USA, and thought that the two combined would make for a very special night. They are delighted to share this with Galway Audiences.
Our events attract audience members from all over the globe and welcome your feedback.
"A really lovely night - thank you for creating something very special, we're already looking forward to the next one..." - Michael, Moth and Butterfly audience member.
