- Curated by Mitchell Cushman’s Outside the March
- Jan 22 - May 14, 2017
Spoke: EAST will be a monthly East End instalment of Outside the March’s (OtM) popular storytelling night. For almost four years now, OtM has presented The Spoke at popular west end venues, Videofag and Burdock. Now The Spoke is coming to the East! The Spoke features a cross-section of people telling true stories from their lives, based around a common theme (past themes have included “Love in the Age of the Internet,” "Kindness of Strangers," and “When the Lights Go Out” — stories told completely in the dark). The Spoke has now run over forty editions of the live event, and has featured almost two hundred storytellers. The event is always Pay What You Can, and features storytellers from all walks of life, and all levels of experience.
The Spoke's residency at Streetcar Crowsnest continues with a very special Valentine's Day edition of the monthly storytelling event. This one will be packed with stories of: unrequited love, unadulterated romance, and unfair use of binoculars. Bring a date! Come alone! Show up late and get dirty looks from our first storyteller of the night! Regardless, it's PAY WHAT YOU CAN!
