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. There is a rehearsal a week before the event to run through the stories, get feedback, meet the other storytellers and enjoy some munchies. More themes coming up:
February 7: When in Rome (2 storytellers still needed)
March 7: Not as Advertised (in conjunction with the UA Museum of Art)
April 4: Oh Gross!  The Juvenile Humor Show
May 2: Mommie Dearest, the Love of Family

Odyssey Storytelling- Presents RELIGION: GOD, ALLAH, YAHWEH, NO WAY & “Separate Identities/Shared Identities,”

Odyssey Storytelling- Presents RELIGION: GOD, ALLAH, YAHWEH, NO WAY & “Separate Identities/Shared Identities,”

RELIGION: GOD, ALLAH, YAHWEH, NO WAY

Show at 7 p.m., Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Fluxx Studio and Gallery, 416 E. 9th St., Tucson, $7
Purchase advance tickets now!

Religion defines us and divides us. Drives us to war, to marriage, to service. Priests and persecution. Culture and customs. Church vs. State. Salvation and dogma. Heaven and Nirvana. Crusades and the Cool Church. Agnostics and Atheists. Robes and wrath. Holy books and history. The words that guide you. The rules that repress you. What’s your way? God? Allah? Yahweh? No way?

Storytellers include Rogue Theatre Board Member Paul Barby, Psychotherapist Susan Walcott Lopez, filmmaker Alex Italics, musician Alex Smythe, and artist and healer Ramjeet Kaur.

ANOTHER AWESOME STORYTELLING EVENT!

Please join Odyssey Storytelling founder Penelope Starr & Kaitlin Meadows at Antigone Books on Friday, November 2, 2012 for “Separate Identities/Shared Identities,” an evening of random personal stories and fabulous poetry. The fun begins at 7 p.m.

The performance duo will explore the question, do our stories define us and give us our uniqueness? In this whimsical evening of fun and fancy, two local mischief makers will explore the question of how unique and how universal our stories really are. Penelope Starr and Kaitlin Meadows will share the stage to entertain, delight, and help you ponder the question: “Am I my stories?” Join us for an evening of fun with time for sharing.
Plan ahead and be adventurous – the construction on 4th Avenue is a challenge but not a deal breaker. There is parking on adjacent streets and a big parking lot ½ block away on 5th Avenue and 7th Street. Here’s a link to the easiest way to get to Antigone http://www.antigonebooks.com/store-info. We would love to see you there.

Where: Antigone Books, 411 N. 4th Avenue, Tucson
When Friday, November 2 at 7 p.m.
