Spark Open Mic - It's Complicated • 12.9.16

At 7:30pm - 10:30pm, Hackney picturehouse, London

There are moments of perplexity, of bafflement and of utmost uncertainty. The thing is, that sometimes there is not a straight answer and one is necessitated to exclaim the complications of life and declare: It’s complicated.

The stories of tonight are about those tangled situations, moments or long periods where things are far from simple. Complicated? – Not at all. Just come on down and have a listen or even better: tell us your story.

Spark Open Mic - 'Moral Dilemma' • 19.9.16

At 7:30pm - 10:30pm, Upstairs at the Ritzy, London

You’ve got the devil on one side and the angel on the other. You are being pulled in both directions while your alter ego tells you to listen to none of them. You are having a moral dilemma, but something’s got to give and a choice has to be made. Whether it is religion, philosophy or the law; something helps us deal with the moral dilemmas of our lives.

Not sure what to do? Then come on down to tell your story, or listen to the stories of those dilemmas we, perhaps, all share.
