Calling all storytellers! We invite YOU to tell a true tale at the “High Five Twilight Stories” event presented by CORE, ACES and Writ Large in late September at Rock Bottom Ranch.
The theme of the night is “Fire in the Belly: Stories about CHANGE.”
We invite you to prepare a seven-minute story about turning a corner. Rallying together, playing a part, creating something new. Finding solutions in the face of shifting sands: an uncertain future, a changing environment, weird weather. Whatever keeps you rolling up your sleeves and moving forward with hope.
You will be supported by a team of experienced writers and performers led by Writ Large curator/director Alya Howe.
The High Five Twilight Stories is a new event that is part of a long tradition of live story events in the Roaring Fork Valley presented by Writ Large. The series has been touching the hearts of all involved: tellers and listeners.
As Alya says, “We believe everyone has a story, many in fact! The sharing of a true tale enables you to see where you now stand within the story, even what the story has to tell you.” Stories, an ancient form of communication, are a powerful way to connect us to each other and deepen our experience with our community and our environment.
This event is an Art+Environment+Community program of the High Five, our social movement uniting the Roaring Fork Valley to take action on the environment by saving energy.
Your story should be a true story that is spoken, not read; personal; and revelatory. That doesn’t mean it has to be tragic, or a bummer. Happier, funnier stories are welcome too. If you choose to participate, consider sitting quietly, reflecting and finding a story by letting your story “choose you.” Alya has found that the more you give yourself to this process and are willing to receive, the more you will get out of this opportunity.
There are no fees associated with this opportunity. Guest storytellers will receive mentoring, two complimentary tickets to the event, and the love, admiration and respect of our welcoming audience! Who knows, your story might even inspire another to tell theirs.
If you’re interested in participating, or if you have any questions, please reach out to Alya at 970-309-2582 and by email. Guidelines will follow.
We hope you will join us; we can’t wait to hear what you have to tell!
