The Moth

Do you like listening to stories? Do you have stories to tell? Then check out the Asheville Moth StorySLAM! It's a monthly competition, where the stage is open to any and all with a story to tell on the evening's theme. The SLAMs are production of The Moth. The schedule and themes are listed at the bottom of this post. 

The wildly popular Asheville Moth StorySLAM is slated to continue for the foreseeable future.  The StorySLAM is a monthly competition, where the stage is open to any and all with a story to tell on the evening's theme. Themes for the rest of 2016 are listed further below in this article.

The monthly Moth StorySLAM at The Mothlight at Mr. Fred's is a huge hit! StorySLAMs are monthly competitions, where the stage is open to any and all with a story to tell on the evening's theme.

Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase. Each show starts with a theme, and the storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the shows dance between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience.

The next Moth StorySLAM happens Thursday, October 15 at The Mothlight at Mr. Fred's in West Asheville. Tickets go on sale Oct. 8 at 3 pm. The Moth StorySLAMs are monthly storytelling competitions where the stage is open to any and all with a story to tell on the evening's theme. This month's theme is 'Home'.

WCQS is thrilled to welcome The Moth to Asheville. The Moth is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. It is a celebration of both the raconteur, who breathes fire into true tales of ordinary life, and the storytelling novice, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it.
