Fugitive Stories: "Breathless"

  • The Gallery at Villageworks 525 Massachusetts Avenue Acton, MA, 01720 United States (map)

“People think that stories are shaped by people. In fact, it’s the other way around.”
 Terry Pratchett

Storytelling is humanity’s oldest form of entertainment. It is the legacy of generations. There’s a thing that happened. There’s the story of the thing that happened. Then there’s the interpretation of the story of the thing that happened. Good tellers identify a moment and craft a compelling story that resonates on many levels — evoking emotion, inviting introspection, and offering a chance to connect with others.

“Fugitive Stories” is a monthly event that brings new and experienced storytellers together to challenge and delight us with this profoundly personal, accessible craft.

Invited tellers prepare five- to six-minutes stories. We also invite audience members who are interested in telling a two- to three-minute story on our theme to drop their name in a hat. If chosen, they’ll tell their tale.
