White Buffalo Storytelling returns for its fifth year, inviting people to share and listen to real stories, starting on Friday, Feb. 21 from 7-9 p.m. at the Alpine Grind in Rossland.
In this series we take the stories to a coffee shop near you, before selecting the best stories for the stage in The Griff next Spring. This is your chance to tell your dinner party stories to a captive audience or just kick back and listen to the event that turns storytelling into an artform.
Inspired by the infamous The Moth storytelling group in New York, the first in this year’s series calls for storytellers to bring their true tales based on “Under One Roof”.
The story can cover topics like living with difficult roommates, strict parents, competitive siblings or more. Each storyteller has 5 minutes maximum to perform and stories must be short, true and related to the theme – delivered from the heart, no reading, to get across the humour and emotion of their tales.
After the first event, the show moves to Bridge View Cafe in Trail on March 8 from 3-5 pm to hear your stories for “Learn From Your Elders”, before culminating with The Best Songs and Stories of White Buffalo evening in the Muriel Griffiths Room at The Bailey Theatre on April 24 at 7:30 pm..
