You might find yourself in Montreal for the upcoming Thanksgiving weekend. Maybe you’re far from home, from family, and will enjoy a microwaveable dinner of tofurkey on a loveseat in front of your laptop for the occasion. Want some company? Come listen to an eclectic series of stories at the BBAM! Storytelling Slam this Sunday. You can bring your tofurkey, we won’t mind.
…It’ll be just like when your Uncle Bob had one too many at family dinners and starts to regale the whole table with stories about the government or his dog, except it’ll be more interesting!
So: Turn off your laptop and smartphone and come listen to some true stories told live at the BBAM! Gallery in St. Henri! This first installment of our storytelling series will feature performance literature innovator Ian Ferrier, veteran Montreal storyteller Gerard Harris and BBAM!’s own Ralph Alfonso. Also some of Montreal’s finest young writers and performers will be presenting, including Keith Waterfield, Stephanie Noel, and Joel Asa Miller.
This month’s theme is ‘a golden opportunity‘ and our storytellers will tackle the topic with a wide variety of autobiographical yarns.
For those who are not familiar with it, The BBAM! Gallery is a charming and intimate venue on St. Jacques less than a block away from Lionel-Groulx metro.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Sunday, October 13th
