The Kenan Institute for Ethics is once again partnering with Jeff Polish and The Monti to bring live storytelling to Duke’s campus.
Workshop on Storytelling
September 22, 7:00pm-8:30pm, 101 West Duke, East Campus
October 27, 7:00pm, Duke Coffee House, East Campus
Live and Unscripted Stories about “Secrets and Lies”
Duke Undergraduates, mentored by Jeff Polish and The Monti – Please, RSVP here!
The Monti is non-profit organization that invites people to tell personal stories without the use of notes. The goal is to create an intimate, open, and fun atmosphere where people can relate their personal experiences to one another through narrative. Last year students told stories about “Betrayal.” This year we are seeking stories about “Secrets and Lies.”
The Monti has been staging live storytelling events to sold-out crowds throughout the Triangle since 2008. For this event, Duke undergraduates have the chance to work with Jeff Polish to craft a personal story into a compelling piece to perform before a live audience.
We are now seeking storytellers for the October 27 event. For more information and to learn how to tell a good story, come to the workshop on September 22. Coming to the workshop does not commit you to tell a story, but by the end of the evening, you may want to! Everyone is welcome. You can just show up, but an RSVP here to help us make sure to have enough food!
Hosted by the Kenan Institute for Ethics in partnership with The Monti. Cosponsored by Story Lab at the Franklin Humanities Institute.
