Upstairs @ Ard Bia, Spanish Arch, Galway
The Theme for November is:
Doors at 8PM - Admission €5 - tickets on the door
We are delighted that The Moth & Butterfly night continues to grow in strength and popularity. This exciting series of nights brings together the art forms of both Storytelling & Improvisation. The night is Galway based but also travels to festivals and events around Ireland and beyond.
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 19th of November 2014 the theme is 'The Surprise'
Stories will be provided by the Moth and Butterfly Creative Crew, Guest Performers, and of course, by the Audience themselves!
We are delighted to return for our Winter Residency, upstairs @ Ard Bia, Spanish Arch Crew and Audience alike are simply charmed by this gorgeous space, and the hospitality of the staff. We will have our own bar upstairs serving drinks for the event. if you fancy coming an hour or so earlier for dinner, we highly recommend the delicious food downstairs. Be sure to phone a head to book a table.
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, to tall tales.
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 'true story' traditions around the world, including 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. We also perform at festivals and arts events - please contact us for more information and bookings.
Our events attract audience members from all over the globe and welcome your feedback.
