Odyssey Storytelling- Presents Myths: Monsters Under The Bed January 10, 2013

Please join us for our next Odyssey Storytelling show:
Myths: Monsters Under The Bed
Thursday, January 10, 2013
Show at 7 p.m., Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Fluxx Studio and Gallery, 416 E. 9th St., Tucson, Still only $7
All good stories rely on the archetypes of myths. From Bigfoot to unicorns, Perseus to the Cyclops, the hero, the martyr, the warrior—the greatest stories ever told!
Six storytellers tell true, personal stories on the theme without notes.
See our website for information on this month’s storytellers! www.odysseystorytelling.com.
Since 2004, Odyssey Storytelling has marched forth entertaining, inspiring and enlightening Tucson through stories from regular folks like you. Get involved as a teller or a listening—stories that are not heard are not stories. All ages are invited, but stories are never censored.
“The great listeners live blessed lives, because they are surrounded by people under the influence of their listening – people experiencing a fundamental form of connection with others, people whose creativity and humanity have been invited to emerge.”   ~ Doug Lipman, The Storytelling Coach
Note that there is road construction on 4th Ave and on Congress so plan your travels accordingly.
 
GOT STORIES?
To submit your story for consideration, send us a one paragraph synopsis of your story and a brief bio about you.
The themes are meant to be interpreted from a broad range of perspectives. If you are shy about telling a story, we give lots of support and helpful hints.

Odyssey Storytelling- Presents THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT

Odyssey Storytelling- Presents THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT

Thursday, July 5, 2012
Show at 7 p.m., Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Fluxx Studio and Gallery, 416 E. 9th St., Tucson

still only $7

U of A Lab Coordinator Ray Moody; artist and geologist John Wakefield; poet, writer and teacher Elizabeth Tilley; realtor Pat Archie; pastor and Wingspan program coordinator Erin Russ; and more will tell stories about:

Customers: are they really always right? Stories from the clerk facing the raging latte addicts and drunken ‘last call’ lunatics. Have you been that customer? Be honest! Demanding quality or accepting the schlock. Why do the road workers seem to stand around? To learn the answer press one now, or say “AGENT.” Over or under worked? Over or under paid? Your tax dollars at work! So much red tape! Customers and employees can agree that someone is “right,” and sharing stories about our righteousness is cathartic. Who have you served? Who has served you?

Note that there is road construction on 4th Ave and on Congress so plan your travels accordingly.
