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
