Our StorySlam: Work brought seven new tellers to the stage to tell their unique and hilarious stories. If you want to reminisce about the event, check out our Facebook photo album and start tagging away! In case you missed these new voices, then read on to know their work stories.
Milwaukee is a uniquely diverse city. We’re known for our beer and brats, but locals know there’s much more. We’ve got the Bronze Fonz, The Calatrava and some might say, we even had a lion. On Wednesday, we gathered at 3041 North. Nine storytellers shared their “Only In Milwaukee” experiences.
Music and storytelling are two sides of the same coin. Each is rooted in a personal truth and carries its own distinct rhythm and universal language. With such a wide variety of melodies, manuscripts & oral recordings to choose from, one is bound to find something that resonates within. Music and storytelling continue to allow us to connect with unknown worlds and individuals; relive forgotten moments, work though our emotions. Some elements frighten us, while others grab on tight to our curiosities imploring us to go beyond our comfort zones.
Speaking of comfort & curiosity, who’s in the mood for an evening of fresh tunes and tales? Ex Fabula and Milwaukee band Panalure are delighted to team up once again to present Cabin Fever, Songs for a Cold Winter Night.
