Milwaukee Storytellers Share Their ‘Gut Feelings’ at Turner Hall

  • Turner Hall Ballroom 1040 Vel R. Phillips Ave Milwaukee, 53203 WI (map)

Milwaukee, WI - January 23rd, 2019   Start 2019 off with Ex Fabula at our annual New

Year Spectacular! Ex Fabula has assembled some of Milwaukee’s best storytellers for

an evening of true and personal storytelling. This noncompetitive curated StorySlam will

return to Turner Hall Ballroom located in Downtown Milwaukee; doors open at 6:30 pm,

stories begin at 7:30 pm.

Throughout the evening, attendees will hear true, personal stories that explore the full

range of human emotions and experiences – which means that stories may contain

adult content. The community members telling stories onstage were selected in

advance; they are currently working with Ex Fabula storytelling coaches to prepare new

stories on the theme of “Gut Feeling”. Audience members can also participate by

submitting UltraShorts, which are brief, true personal stories written on slips of paper

and then read onstage by the emcee.

New this year, members of the No Stress Collective will be providing music throughout

the night. NCS is a dj crew specializing in dance parties that center the creative

expression of women, people of color, trans and queer people.

Story. Stage. You. These three elements bring Milwaukeeans together at the

Spectacular- to listen, to learn, and to find common ground. Join Ex Fabula to kick off a

brand-new year of strengthening community bonds through radically inclusive

storytelling.
