(BOISE, ID) Story Story Night introduces the black sheep in the family with the new Story Story Late-Night series, an offshoot of the popular live storytelling program that will highlight the more raw, revealing and provocative stories in the community. Story Story Late-Nights will be held on the second Monday of four select months in 2012 at the adults-only Visual Arts Collective, a 21-and-over venue located at 3638 Osage Street in Garden City’s arts district.
The first show in Story Story Late-Night is NAKED Stories on March 12, 2012, with host Emma Arnold and featured musician Dan Costello.
NAKED begins at 8 pm, and doors open at 7 pm. Admission is $5. Limited advance tickets have sold out but 150+ general admission tickets are available at the door.
Each Story Story Late-Night will be hosted by a provocateur from the community, a storytelling emcee who embodies the spirit of a scandalous theme. The host will open the night with an audacious story, then open the floor to the audience. Names will be drawn from a vessel, and the chosen ones will come up on stage and tell a story. Subject-matter relevant prizes will be given to storytellers. A featured musician will add themed texture and tone with late-night worthy music.
“We are calling this series positively shameless,“ says Jessica Holmes, the driving force behind Story Story Night. ”This will highlight raw and real stories on an unblushing theme, live on stage, without notes or inhibitions. We want to set the stage for unfiltered, uninhibited and hilarious honesty.”
Story Story Late-Nights continue after NAKED in 2012 with CRIME Stories on May 14 with host Josh Gross; BODILY EMISSION Stories on TBD in the summer with host Kiely Prouty; and INTOXICATION & ALTERED STATES Stories on October 8 with host Brandon Follet.
