Thursday, 28 SEPT 19:00 - 22:00

September marks the beginning of the second half of our 2023 season. To celebrate, we’re offering everyone in our Zurich Storytellers community a SECOND CHANCE to participate in our next StorySLAM — on stage sharing a true story, or part of the audience who votes for the best storyteller of the night.

“ .. if you never get a second chance at something you didn’t take a first chance at it.” - C. JoyBell C.


We’ve all needed a SECOND CHANCE at one time or another in this odyssey we call life. What was yours? A love lost, then reborn, a business failure revived or a dead end job that miraculously led to a dream opportunity?

Let your mind roam: recall an occasion when a SECOND CHANCE rekindled belief in yourself or unbelievable possibilities.
L200 Event Space Langstrasse 200, 8005 Zurich

  1. Define a character (probably yourself;-) How were you feeling at that moment? Confident, lonely, conflicted, anxious, stressed, in lust or love?
  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.
