New Haven Recap
Posted by Artspace on Sunday 28 November 04 @ 7:13PM   1 Comments

Our event this year was even better than last year!

Artspace hosted our event again this year,which allowed us to draw a crowd from both literary and visual arts circles. The space we used in the front portion of the Artspace gallery faces the busy corner of Crown and Orange street and is made mostly of metal and glass. Curious passersby stopped to spy at us through the windows as the night went on. From the street it actually looked quite cozy, a semi-circle of chairs in several rows filled with people of all ages. A storyteller plotted in front of a giant pastel abstract, and bathed from overhead by two halogen spotlights.

We had great performers, many of whom are breaking away from the page and adapting flavorful storytelling styles! We were suprised by a gentleman named Bill Graustein who offered to connect us with other storytellers in town and possibly host workshops in the future. I'd alos like to include singer songwriters in next year's event.

The Elm City Story Circle, a local writers group, was out in strong force. Getting to hear true stories made it even more interesting, since we often meet and share under fictional circumstances. I was won over by my friends, through thier honesty and insight, some of whom now I have become a dedicated fan. I felt we were all allowed a better glimpse of one anothers perceptions and personalities, which makes it easier to define what portions of ourselves carry into our other written work.

Story topics included: discovering sexuality at the Rocky Horror Picture Show, going undercover to the Republican Ntl. Convention, and getting rid of an unsavory college roomate...

Best to all who participated in New Haven and beyond!
