Thursday, 29 JUNE 19:00 - 22:00

Have you ever experienced - maybe for a few seconds (or hours?), it felt like somebody hit the pause button right before things were about to explode? In that moment of crystal clarity or abject terror, you instinctively felt your guts tighten, anticipating unknown forces that were about to be unleashed?

Most of us have weathered a CALM BEFORE THE STORM: marriage proposals, penalty kicks, placing a bet or buying a property. It might have been the surreal eye of a hurricane or a total suspension of feelings. How we react is revealing - and makes for good stories!

For our June open-mic StorySLAM, come tell and hear stories inspired by consequences good bad or phenomenal around the theme: CALM BEFORE THE STORM. This is our last show before the summer break, so bring yourself, a plus one and an open heart for a night of remarkable personal narratives well told live on our L200 mainstage.

  2. Where are you? Home, work, sunset, on the street, hotel, hiking in the mountains?
  3. What’s at stake? Career, security, peace of mind, redemption, future happiness?
  4. What was the crisis or conflict that triggered that moment for you?
  5. How did it work out? Did it make you happy, joyful, and peaceful or are you sad, resentful, and filled with remorse? Bring us full circle and share your beautiful truth as you are now.
