The following description was submitted by the event organizer.
Literary Arts and The Moth are bringing a new lineup of storytellers to Portland. Each Moth Mainstage show features five tellers who have developed their true stories with help from The Moth’s directors.
The Moth features true stories, told live and without notes. The Moth celebrates the ability of stories to honor both the diversity and commonality of human experience and to satisfy a vital human need for connection. It seeks to present storytellers among established and emerging writers, performers, and artists and to encourage storytelling among communities whose stories often go unheard.
