KIN: Prepare a five-minute story about your kinfolk. Whether by birth or found, best friends or worst enemies, veritable strangers or somewhere in between—when did you know you were among your people? Did older brothers offer protection? Or did younger sisters manage to bully upwards? From Brady Bunch families to animal siblings, tell us how family has shaped the person you’ve become.

 

7:00 pm Doors open

7:30 pm Stories begin

 

*Tickets are $10 and will become available on Tuesday, November 7, at 3:00 pm ET on The Moth website

 

This StorySLAM is presented by The Moth in partnership with Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

 

The Moth—hailed as “New York’s hottest and hippest literary ticket” by The Wall Street Journal—is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. The Moth has presented more than 3,000 stories, told live and without notes, by people from all walks of life to standing-room-only crowds worldwide.

 

Moth StorySLAMs are open-mic storytelling competitions, held in 28 cities around the world. They are open to anyone with a five-minute story to share on the night’s theme. When the doors open, storyteller hopefuls put their names in The Moth “hat." A half-hour later, names are picked, and one by one, storytellers take the stage. The ten featured stories are scored by teams of judges selected from the audience. Each StorySLAM generates a StorySLAM winner. After ten SLAMs, the winners face off in a GrandSLAM Championship.
