Stories from the Floor
FRIDAY 28 October 2016
This month at the Shaggy Dog we're hosting a Stories from the Floor Halloween Special
where anyone burning to tell a ten minute tale, share a ballad, a song or even a poem or two will be welcome to do so. During the first half of the evening tellers can spin out their yarns following whatever thread they fancy (so if you've got a story you've been saving since April, this month would be a good time to share it with everyone) but from 9pm onwards the theme will most definitely be FRIGHT NIGHT....Join our resident tellers with stories of murder, mystery and mayhem. 8pm upstairs in The Stubbing Wharf, King St. See you there if you dare!
The hunger for narrative is a basic human instinct. Stories help us make sense of the world and give structure and order to our everyday lives. They tell us what is important, what is not and give us a way to connect people's individual experiences to those of others. They help us identify with universal truths. Stories are a way we put a human face on the world, which is something we have always needed and valued. Some of our most profound decisions are made emotionally, not rationally. Stories tap into emotions better than anything else.
If you want to know more, come and listen to the Shaggy Dog Storytellers presenting
TALES from the WHARF.
On the last Friday of every month, except December.
The Shaggy Dog Storytellers provide storytellers for any performance or workshop.
