Description

Join Ex Fabula and Gathering Art, Stories and Place- along with Milwaukee’s Deaf community at the first ever Deaf StorySlam: Labels!

StorySlam: Labels is an evening of true and personal stories told by Milwaukee’s Deaf community. For this noncompetitive curated Slam, the storytellers are selected in advance, and each teller works with an Ex Fabula storytelling coach to prepare a story about Labels – stories about misconceptions, rejecting stigmas and identity. Audience members can also participate in the storytelling by submitting UltraShorts, which are brief, true personal stories written on slips of paper and then read onstage by the emcee.
