No one gathers, and tells, stories like The Moth. What makes The Moth extraordinary is that participants tell their stories live, without notes.
The nationally-renowned program – whose mission is to promote the art and craft of storytelling and to honor and celebrate the diversity and commonality of human experience – comes to Boca to kick off our Authors and Ideas series with a lively, open storytelling competition.
Anyone with a five-minute story to share on the day's theme can step on the stage and tell a story. Seating is limited for this very special event, so bring your friends and your stories, and prepare to be deeply entertained.
The theme for Festival Boca's StorySLAM is “Achilles Heel”: Prepare a five-minute story about weaknesses and soft spots. Vulnerable situations. That look your dog gives you, your secret love of harlequin novels, your fear of goldfish, your need to have the last word. Recklessly falling in love or getting struck down from the hilltop. Regale us with tales of your personal kryptonite.
