Ten stories, three teams of judges, one winner.
Peabody award-winning storytelling collective, The Moth, joins the World Science Festival for a science-themed StorySLAM. At the beginning of the show, would-be storytellers (perhaps you?) put their names into a hat, and ten are selected to take the stage to share a true story, five minutes long, based on the theme “Natural Selection.” Wooing the audience with tales of Darwinian dominance, inherited traits, survival of the fittest, and other evolutionary adaptations, contestants will be judged on sticking to the five-minute time frame, working within the theme, and presenting a story with a coherent structure and resolution.
Presented in collaboration with The Moth.
