Tues. January 14,2020: THE MOTH HOUSTON STORYSLAM: ADVENTURE at The Ballroom at Warehouse Live!

ADVENTURE: Prepare a five-minute story about an experience outside your usual sphere of comfort. Dangerous outings, dubious cohorts, uncharted territory. The joy of the unknowing…the terror of the finding out. Escapades, romps and walkabouts. May the force be with you.

The Moth, a not-for-profit storytelling organization, was founded in New York in 1997 by poet and novelist George Dawes Green, who wanted to recreate in New York the feeling of sultry summer evenings on his native St. Simon's Island, Georgia, where he and a small circle of friends would gather to spin spellbinding tales on his friend Wanda's porch. After moving to New York, George missed the sense of connection he had felt sharing stories with his friends back home, and he decided to invite a few friends over to his New York apartment to tell and hear stories. Thus the first "Moth" evening took place in his living room. Word of these captivating story nights quickly spread, and The Moth moved to bigger venues in New York. Today, The Moth conducts eight ongoing programs and has brought more than 3,000 live stories to over 100,000 audience members.
