The Moth StorySLAM Insects: A Live Storytelling EventOctober 3 at 7:30 p.m.

TimeOctober 3 at 7:30 p.m.

Join us for a live storytelling event with The Moth. The Moth aims to promote the art and craft of storytelling, and to honor and celebrate the diversity and commonality of human experience.

Relax and enjoy the show or plan to tell a story.

For this special one-off StorySLAM, prepare a story to share onstage, or simply join us to listen to the wonderful stories shared by members of our community. Three teams of judges will select one winner, who will progress toward a GrandSLAM Championship. The theme for the night is... insects. 

Prepare a five-minute story about bugging out. Moments that get your spidey senses tingling. Jiminy Cricket, Beetlejuice, Queen Bey, and Ant-Man or Coleoptera, Diptera, Hymenoptera, and Lepidoptera. Making a beeline for someone, or dropping like flies. A caterpillar's metamorphosis from an inching, wriggling crawler into a majestic, flying butterfly. Dreaded encounters with those biting, bloodthirsty pests that lurk at dusk or an awe-filled reverence for those that pollinate, decompose, and make the world go round.

Separate Ticket Required (free for Gustavus students and employees and $5 for general public)
