Don’t get too excited – the clothes are staying on.

What am I saying?

Get excited!

This is stage two of the story-telling project I’m involved in.

You remember part 1 don’t you?

Barefaced Stories.

Part 1 was me doing the course and then telling my nude beach story at the Blue Room in February.

There is a lot more detail in the story that was told on the night and you can listen to that below.

Did you have a listen?

Well that gives you a good idea of what we are doing – true stories told in front of an audience without any notes.

Tonight I’m telling a story about my first time in Bali.

It’s a gentler story.

Not quite as racy but I hope will be entertaining.

After my first experience I’ve been dying to have another go.

It was so exhilarating!

And we’re opening the floor up so if you think you might want to have a go, come along to our fortnightly Sunday practice sessions.

Or just come along tonight and enjoy the party.

It’s all happening at The Bird, a tiny little pub on William St, Northbridge, just opposite the new State Theatre Centre.

And come up and say hi!

Here’s the official blurb:

Perth’s newest underground storytelling night.

Barefaced Stories recently featured as part of The Blue Room Theatre’s Summer Nights  and is moving to The Bird in Northbridge.

This exciting new regular storytelling series features trained solo raconteurs, from comedians to prowrestlers, who will take the stage with nothing but their true life tales – some humourous, some sad, and some downright perverse.

Join Barefaced for an entertaining night of intimatedisclosures and heartfelt anecdotes.

“Storytelling has exploded into a thriving genre all itsown.” – New York Times

Last Tuesday in March, the 29th.

Show starts at 8pm

Tickets: $10 at the door.

The Bird, 181 William St, Northbridge

CB that was HILARIOUS mate… hahaha! Well done! Wish I’d been there… (um – at the storytelling – ok! Sheesh)

I’m really interested in this, so if you don’t mind – I might find myself turning up to the next one – it sounds like great fun! I’ve been wondering if I’d be brave enough to take the next step, so it sounds like this is a really open and friendly way to try it out! I’ll suss it out when I get back from Broome – I’m off tomorrow – family business sadly… wish it was work!

I’d like to hear more about Sydney too – so I’ll see if you’ve had a word or two to say about that too whilst I’m here… Cheers mate – :-)

Hey Deeleea – well if it gets that far I hope I get to go with it!

And Belongum – you would be awesome! Call me and come along to the fortnightly sessions and see what you think – you get great feedback on your stories and the more the merrier.

Reading your blog you have so many to tell.
:)
