If there’s one thing Ex Fabula has brought to the Milwaukee community over the past nine seasons, it’s connections. Stories are the connective tissue that hold our families, neighborhoods, and communities together. So there was no more fitting theme for the Season 9 ALL STARS event than “Connection.”
From the Ex Fabula Blog:
We’re headed back to Turner Hall, Friday May 18th 2018 to present Season 9 ALL STARS. It’s our Season ender featuring this Season’s winners from previous StorySlams. This year’s ALL STARS will feature 7 amazing community members telling their true, personal stories.

While the recent snow may have Milwaukeeans thinking it’s the last straw for winter, Ex Fabula hosted its last StorySlam of Season 9 on the theme of “Last Straw” at the Times Cinema on April 10th. A full house enjoyed emcees Leah Delaney and Nelson Lopez read the audience’s UltraShorts to think about the many ways we experience the “last straw” in our lives, and state representative, Evan Goyke, welcomed everyone to “The [Washington] Heights” neighborhood.
TMI – Too. Much. Information. Rolling out the March 22nd Story Slam, Ex Fabula asked for it, and the story tellers who took the stage at Garfield’s 502 delivered. Body fluids spilled and spewed from body orifices. Boundaries were crossed, privacy was violated, and judging from the constant laughter, a good time was had by all.
It was a packed and cozy room inside Bay View’s Sugar Maple as everyone came together to share and hear stories about the topic of karma.
Can I ask a favor? It would mean a lot!

We returned to the Turner Hall Ballroom for our New Year Spectacular: Break Free. Six curated storytellers took the stage to share their stories of breaking free including heartwarming and hilarious UltraShorts in-between.
2017 ended with Ex Fabula tellers sharing their traditions. Ex Fabula will start 2018 by celebrating the bad habits, relationships, mindsets we broke free of. Continue reading “New Year Spectacular Sneak Peek!!”
